Speech Title: IoT Enabled Technology in smart Healthcare: IoMT Applications, Achievements & Challenges

Abstract: The latest advances and trends in Artificial intelligence (AI) played a remarkable role in the smart healthcare sector. Artificial intelligence (AI) has undeniably developed in recent years to become one of the hottest innovations incorporated into all kinds of applications and intelligent networks such as control, healthcare, natural language analysis, automated systems, connectivity and networking, and cybersecurity.

These innovations led to the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) which provides a continuous, remote and real-time monitoring of patients. the Internet-of-Medical Things technology connects experts, data and processes through IT systems wirelessly for better care of patients in smart medical systems. Many applications over the past decades have been developed to track patients' physical activity and support the pharmaceutical staff for appropriate rehabilitation. The surgical instruments are connected to the corpses of the patients and related to the cloud paradigm for the processing and review of the health data. Through this assistive technology, the potential of IoMT allows precise diagnoses, fewer errors and lower costs of care, enabling patients to send health information data to doctors. Due to IoMT environment data sharing is easy and there is no need for physical visits to hospitals & healthcare centers that reduces spread of the COVID19 virus.

However, still there are many challenges in the IoMT architectures in terms of bandwidth, flexibility, reliability, data security and privacy, big data, data management, data acquisition, data processing and cost effectiveness, and energy efficiency. This talk will address the IoT enabled technology applications in smart Healthcare and IoMT applications, achievements & challenges.
