Sensor Fusion is a novel and elegant concept, arising out of the exploding diversity in sensors, data and artificial intelligence techniques. The applications for sensor fusion in healthcare delivery are almost endless. Patients can receive better care, cost-effective therapies and speedier recoveries, hospitals can be run efficiently, with reduced errors. Medical devices built for various applications will have a dual focus on health outcomes and will be a keystone of sensor fusion in healthcare. However, to realize the benefits, some challenges must be overcome. Medical devices come equipped with their own sensory systems, which inevitably results in a series of cacophonous silos and the data becomes barely usable. Duplication, fragmentation, errors and loss are more the norm than the solution. During this presentation, expert speakers will lay out the landscape of opportunities. Topics will include:
