Title: Multimedia Big Data based Personalized Health Management

Abstract: With the fact that “Healthy China” rises to national strategy, the medical services have transferred from after-disease treatment to preventive health management. Health management models vary from person to person, and the personalized health management needs to focus on the monitoring and analysis of individual lifestyle and behavior patterns. The real-time behavior data, which is automatically collected via wearable devices and social media, enables all-round recording of individual lifestyle and behavior patterns and thus can be exploited for personalized health management. There are some key issues we need to solve before building up this kind of system. First, how to storage and manage the huge personal multimedia data from surrounding camera and microphone and other devices. Second, how to acquire the personal historic data from the wearable devices they might keep all user data in their own loop. Third, quite close to the second issue but even hard to deal with, how we can get the real-time behavior data for the decision system of healthcare from wearable devices providers in case their data is not open to public yet. In this talk, I will discuss some solutions to solve the issues, including but not limited to, heterogeneous and multi-source health data structuring, standardization for the data format of wearable device, public multimedia data center for personal healthcare, disease association pattern mining from dynamic and static health data, personalized and real-time health management for dynamic decision support.
