AGE-WELL & APPTA policy Rounds Title: Context-Aware Sensing for Aging-in-Place
June 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Speaker: Dr. Qiyin Fang, Canada Research Chair in Biophotonics and a Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics, McMaster University
Description: Using telemedical technologies for remote monitoring of patients is an active area for aging-in-place applications, which will lead to improved care and prevent unnecessary use of unplanned resource intensive services. While many data can be collected, interpretation and analysis of their meaning requires establishing contexts autonomously, especially for large datasets analyzed using machine learning models. The McMaster Smart Home for Aging-in-Place (SHAPE) is a multidisciplinary collaborative research platform designed to develop novel sensor and associated sensor network technologies specifically for aging-in-place applications. In this talk, we will give a brief overview of the research platform and several ongoing sensor development projects.
