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.
