TITLE: AI-enabled Sensing and Interventions for Global Health.

ABSTRACT:The challenges and opportunities to improve the global health cycle are at critical inflection points under the strain of a world-wide pandemic, international conflict, and large-scale environmental disasters. AI-enabled sensing, decision support, and actions can leverage the enormous data generated and consumed through the global health steps of monitoring, diagnosis, intervention, training, prevention, and informing the public. This presentation will discuss how body sensor networks and health informatics platforms can work in concert with population-level and environmental sensing to assess health threat phenomenology, exposure dosimetry, medical intervention efficacy. These advances can be used to scale interventions, guide health and emergency response policy, enhance training of healthcare providers and first responders, and more effectively engage the public.
