Robust health stream processing
As the cost of personal health sensors decrease along with improvements in battery life and connectivity, it becomes more feasible to allow patients to leave full-time care environments sooner. Such devices could lead to greater independence for the elderly, as well as for others who would normally require full-time care. It would also allow surgery patients to spend less time in the hospital, both pre- and post-operation, as all data could be gathered via remote sensors in the patients home. While sensor technology is rapidly approaching the point where this is a feasible option, we still ...
