应威尼斯99499蒋宇辰助理教授与罗浩教授邀请，西班牙维戈大学Juan J. Rodríguez-Andina教授于5月26日（周四）举行“国际学者云课堂”线上学术讲座，题目为“Wearable devices, embedded systems, and artificial intelligence for medical applications（面向医疗应用的可穿戴设备、嵌入式系统和人工智能）”，欢迎感兴趣的师生参加。
As population ages and adopts more sedentary lifestyles, the incidence of some diseases (e.g., cardiovascular) is very high, threatening health at a worldwide scale. With life expectancy continuously increasing, it is reasonable to predict that the situation will become worse in the near future. Therefore, healthcare systems will be required to assist an increasing number of people, while being economically sustainable in the long term.
In this scenario, it is very important to develop systems for patient empowerment, which help reduce the number of people to be examined in hospital for diagnosis of potential serious health problems, or the human resources required for post-treatment or rehabilitation of confirmed patients.
One promising way to address this challenge is the use of affordable wearable devices and embedded systems, together with artificial intelligence techniques. In this talk, the application of such devices, systems, and techniques to three case studies will be discussed, namely, ambulatory screening and post-treatment monitoring of cardiac patients, 6-minute walk test, and arterial blood pressure monitoring.
The talk will conclude with another case study related to medical applications, namely ICU alarm system.
Prof. Juan J. Rodriguez-Andina earned his M.Sc. degree in industrial engineering from the Technical University of Madrid, in 1990 and his Ph.D. degree also in industrial engineering from the University of Vigo in Spain, in 1996. He is a professor in the Department of Electronic Technology, University of Vigo. His research interests include the implementation of complex control and processing algorithms and intelligent sensors in embedded platforms.
Prof. Rodriguez-Andina has authored more than 180 journal and conference articles and holds several Spanish, European, and U.S. patents. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and an active member of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society. He served as Senior AdCom member, and the editor-in-chief and associate editor for several IES flagship publications. He is recipient of the IES Anthony J. Hornfeck Award in 2020, and the Best Paper Award of IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine in 2017. From 2015 to 2017, he visited HIT and gave summer courses.
