Continuous monitoring of health data

KTH Life Science Day 2023

KTH Life Science Day 2023 was held on 22 November 2023 and showcased some work within continuous health data monitoring at KTH. The speakers talked about sensor development, data analysis and visualisation pipeline creation, infrastructure for data sharing establishment, and formulating design philosophies and ethical guidelines for handling the extensive data associated with continuous monitoring.

Time: Wed 2023-11-22 13.00 - 17.30

Location: KTH Campus, Digital Futures, Osquars Backe 5, Stockholm

Language: English

The healthcare landscape increasingly recognises the importance of frequent health data monitoring, a trend not limited to the ill but extends to the wellness-seeking population. This aligns seamlessly with our data-centric society, where acquiring and storing massive amounts of information has become more accessible. Continuous monitoring of health data poses numerous opportunities and challenges and is therefore the theme of KTH Life Science Day 2023.
