Topic: Big Data Opportunities: Systems Monitoring and Personalized Health Management

Speaker: Prof. Kwok Leung Tsui , City University of Hong Kong

Date and Time: 15:30 - 16:30, Friday, November 8, 2019

Venue: Boardroom, Dao Yuan Building



Due to the advancement of computation power, sensor technologies, and data collection devices, the fields of systems monitoring and health management have been evolved over the past several decades under different names and application domains, such as statistical process control (SPC), process monitoring, health surveillance, prognostics and health management (PHM), engineering asset management (EAM), personalized medicine, etc. There are tremendous opportunities in interdisciplinary research of system monitoring through integration of SPC, system informatics, data analytics, PHM, and personalized health management. In this talk we will present our views and experience in the evolution of systems monitoring, challenges and opportunities, and applications in machine systems health management as well as human health management.
