Safeguarding Public Health During Infectious Disease Pandemics Using Medical Robotics, Wearable Technology, and AI Workshop
The focus of this workshop is on ways medical robotic systems, wearables, and AI technologies could augment, assist and support the healthcare system to safeguard public health and protect frontline healthcare workers during health crises such as the novel coronavirus pandemic. Of interests are:
Methods and devices to facilitate the prevention, containment, and mitigation of infectious diseases,
Novel means of telehealth/telemedicine for creating physical distancing between clinicians and patients,
Technologies for independent living of high-risk populations,
Social robotics for supporting mental health,
Wearables for monitoring COVID symptoms.
The overarching goal of this workshop is to create awareness among engineers, scientists, and medical professionals concerning how the world can be better prepared for the next pandemic, reducing the negative impacts on healthcare systems, healthcare workers, and patients.
