Keynote speech:The Challenges and the Opportunities in Wireless Health.
Speaker: Prof. Roozbeh Jafari, University of Texas at Dallas, USA.
Session Chair: A. Laouiti, Telecom SudParis, France.
Abstract: Wireless Health brings to fruition many opportunities to continuously monitor the human body with sensors placed on body or implanted in the body. These platforms will revolutionize many application domains including health care and wellness. They provide new avenues to continuously monitor individuals, whether it is intended to detect an early onset of a disease or to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. In the past few years, new wearable applications have evolved and proved to be effective. The community has observed a large number of wireless health applications that have been developed using wearable computers. Yet, not many have been deployed in a large scale. There are still several challenges that need to be addressed before realizing the ubiquitous use of wireless health systems.
In this talk, we will highlight several applications of the wireless health and wearable computers. We will describe several components of the wireless health computing systems and will outline challenges associated with their ubiquitous deployment. We will highlight current research directions and will discuss future directions.
