Plenary Speaker 

Prof. Dr. Shaikh Fattah, Education Chair, IEEE HAC

Title of Keynote Talk:

Challenges and Opportunities of Bio-signal Based Humanitarian Technologies in Sustainable Development Space

Abstract of Keynote Talk:

Dependence on cellphone applications and fascination for wearable devices have created a large demand for research in automatic disease detection and smart health control systems. Instead of large scale medical instrumentations, this type of low cost handheld bio-signal processing systems are getting popularity because of user’s self operating options and instant service facilities. One greatest advantage of such innovations is their accessibility to under privileged population, irrespective of their location, gender, financial capability, and level of education. Good health and well-being for people is one of the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), which dictate the success of several other goals. There are lot of opportunities for inventing smart bio-signal processing techniques that can help in achieving good health for a larger community. However, the main challenge here is to offer satisfactory performance with low cost implementation in small sized devices. Some recent examples of such bio-signal based humanitarian applications in sustainable development space will be presented along with initiatives and funding opportunities from IEEE humanitarian activity committee (HAC).

For further details and interactive training on humanitarian project design and funding details of IEEE HAC, IEEE SIGHT and other philanthropic programs, the conference organizer’s arranged a collocated IEEE HAC Education Workshop on 26th July during 9 am- 12 noon at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak. Please feel free to join the interactive training session and learn how to develop a quality humanitarian project. There will be also an IEEE HAC Track inside the conference on 24 th July 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm (Venue: Hilton Kuching (conference venue)).
