Title: “Towards Smart and Secure Connected Health”
Connected health is the the use of Internet, sensing, communications and intelligent techniques in support of healthcare applications. Wireless body area networks (WBANs) with various types of biomedical sensors is one of major infrastructures of connected health and provide an opportunity to address issues in rapidly increasing connected health applications. However, there are significant challenges in the area, such as improving the performance of WBANs, analytics of large and continuous physiological data collected from biomedical sensors and predictive modeling, and securing data transmission and protecting data privacy, especially in mobile and wireless environments. In this talk, I will introduce two case studies in the related area: (1) developing a wearable biosensor system for the remote detection of life threatening events in infants; (2) a security system to support reliable and secured data transmissions over WBANs.
