I has been a pleasure for me to give a guest lecture under the title “Mobile Sensors & Technologies for Healthcare” in the framework of the congress “mHealth patient-centred technologies: the future is now” organized by the Higher Institute of Engineering of Oporto.
I have presented the latest IoT and AIoT developments in the area of healthcare. Technology is fundamental in the development of any product and/or service and if used correctly, it can become a powerful instrument for improving today’s healthcare system.
The current crisis has made us realize the importance of having a solid healthcare system and, at present, technology makes the work of specialists safer and more efficient. Over the course of the lecture we reviewed the state of the art and presented some of the products that we make at our research group, BISITE, and at AIR Institute. We also discussed how the technology we develop can help in the fight against Covid-19 and the potential that the combination of AI with IoT offers to healthcare.
