"Smart Aging: Topics, Applications, Technologies, and Agenda"
Abstract: Aging is a rapidly growing social problem in the developed world. It is critically important to mitigate the effects of aging, improve elderly people’s life, and improve overall quality of healthcare environments. Smart aging addresses those challenges by intelligently utilizing modern biomedical, digital healthcare, big data computing & analytics, IOT, and communication technologies. In this talk, I will first review several innovative R&D projects and services for smart aging. I will then present a comprehensive review of various research activities on smart aging from the content analysis of public web pages and the web pages of NIH funded research projects related to smart aging. I will then cover recent developments in big data technologies for smart health, including healthcare data warehouses, data lakes and big data analytics. I will conclude my talk with a summary of suggestions on smart aging projects and research topics in smart aging.
