Keynote Title
Edge Intelligence for Health Solutions

Keynote Speaker
Weisong Shi (Wayne State University)

Keynote Abstract
The proliferation of Internet of Everything and the success of rich cloud services have pushed the horizon of a new computing paradigm, Edge computing, which calls for processing the data at the edge of the network. Edge computing has the potential to address the concerns of response time requirement, battery life constraint, bandwidth cost saving, as well as data safety and privacy. One of the killer applications of edge computing is healthcare. In this talk, he will talk about several challenges and potential solutions of applying edge intelligence to health solutions.
