One of the key challenge in today’s health analysis is that the data is very sparse: individuals are examined at health centers, with expensive equipment, by trained experts and only after the individual is suspected or identified of a health condition. Can we encourage healthy and disease-prone individuals to frequently measure health parameters, contribute to a large data collection and enable a new range of algorithms to exploit and enable predictive analysis?
This workshop will focus on development of personal, affordable, accessible, portable capture devices and/or corresponding computational algorithms. We will investigate opportunities at the intersection of computational imaging, computer vision, image analysis and machine learning. We would like to discuss new computational solutions in healthcare for health status assessment, monitoring of epidemiological trends and predictive analytics.
