Speech Title: "Wearables, Signal Analysis and Digital Healthcare"

Abstract: With the advancements in wearable sensor technologies, data analytics, and machine learning, the role of meaningful signal analysis is a key area of investigation. Most of the real-world signals, and especially the signals from wearable sensors possess long-term, non-stationary and non-linear characteristics. Signal representation, information processing and feature extraction from these signals is a challenging task. This talk will focus on six generations of signal processing algorithms developed for the analysis and interpretation of biomedical signals. Recent advances in using sparse signal representation and compressive sensing of long-term signals for Internet of Things (IoT) applications will also be covered. The application of the extraction and classification of features from cardiac signals, bio-acoustical signals, and sleep signals will be discussed in detail.
