AGE-WELL & APPTA policy Rounds: The data scarcity problem in understanding older adult mobility
June 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Zheng Rong, Professor, Faculty of Engineering, McMaster University
Description: Despite the significant advance of AI in computer vision and natural language processing, developing wearable-based solutions to monitoring and characterizing older adult mobility still faces significant challenges due to the lack of quality data from older populations. In this talk, we first present a case study on in-hospital patients to illustrate the extent of the problem, and then discuss our current efforts toward mitigating the data scarcity problem and possible policy implications.
