Multimedia and multimodal sensing are now ubiquitous. They open up opportunities for innovations in personal healthcare ranging from medical imaging, personal monitoring using wearable sensors to analysing personal media archives. Incorporating machine learning, pattern recognition and deep learning offers more opportunities to create personalized healthcare including novel disease prevention and early disease diagnosis.
This special issue explores new directions in multimedia and multimodal sensing for personalized healthcare by bringing together diverse research domains including multimedia, personalized healthcare, ubiquitous computing and human computer interaction.
Topics of interest for this issue include, but are not limited to:
Multimedia data interpretation, visualization and fusion Social sensing and context awareness Ambient assisted living and sensor based assessment Multimedia to support self-health monitoring Multimedia data retrieval techniques Virtual reality in multimedia healthcare data Monitoring from heterogeneous multimedia healthcare data streams Brain computer interfaces and corresponding multimedia analysis Multimedia based eye movements and commands for impaired population Multimodal sensing for behavioural understanding Multimedia in personal health records Day-to-day multimedia based health activity monitoring Multimedia based short term/long term health monitoring Health-related event detection in large-scale user data collection Automated health status generation and prioritization.
