Biomedical Signal Analysis in the era of Internet of Things and Data Analytics


The talk will cover physiological signal sensing, computational sensing (compressive sensing and sparsity), signal decomposition approaches for pre-processing (denoising, detrending and artifact removals), time-frequency and tensor signal processing for extraction of non-stationary and non-linear features, clustering approaches for pattern classification. Experimental results and suggestions on how these signal processing methods could be applied in the context of Internet of Things for “quantified” self and daily/frequency monitoring of activities such as cardiac, gait, sleep and other human motions.
