IEEE COM/SP Chapter - Austin, “Big Data, Cyber-Biological Systems, and Pattern Recognition"



The Internet of Things deals with connectivity among physical devices known as cyber-physical systems. The trend in healthcare is cyber-biological systems where devices outside and implanted in the human body wirelessly communicate with physical systems. In this set-up, issues such as wireless communication, low power, redundancy, reliability, security, and robust pattern detection are all paramount. The cyber-biological systems generate gigantic amounts of data. This opens opportunities for developing sophisticated techniques for signal de-noising, feature extraction, and statistical pattern recognition within energy constraints. In this talk we will discuss opportunities and challenges in cyber-biological systems and share some results related to feature extraction and classification using ECG signals.
