Lecture Series in Pattern Recognition
题 目 (TITLE)：From multimodal-sensing to complex event detection in health applications
讲 座 人 (SPEAKER)：Prof. Thomas Plagemann, University of Oslo
主 持 人 (CHAIR)： Prof. Changsheng Xu
时 间 (TIME)： August 16(Friday), 2013, 9:30 - 10:00 AM
地 点 (VENUE)：No.1 Conference Room (3rd floor), Intelligence Building
In this talk we take a look into the future possibilities that modern sensors will provide for health applications and the challenges that need to be addressed. To simplify the development of the applications we propose to use complex event processing on multimodal data streams. We will take a closer look into two applications, i.e., heart attack prediction and Ambient Assistant Living and discuss the challenges, our approach and present some results.
