As part of the “Mental Health: Sensing & Intervention” (MHSI) 2023 Ubicomp workshop, I was asked to give a “technical” keynote on the state of sensing in mental health. I gave a talk on “Technical Perspectives on Mobile Sensing in Mental Health” and the slides are available below, with a discussion of the key take-away messages.Continue reading “Keynote Talk at UbiComp 2023 in Cancún, Mexico”
Today I was invited to give a presentation to the Danish health management organization “Region of Southern Denmark” as part of their strategy conference on digital health.
I used my old paper on “Pervasive healthcare as a scientific discipline” as an outset to discuss where I see healthcare is moving – based (of course) on our research into digital health at DTU Health Tech and CACHET. Here I identify seven major trends, which I still find to be relevant. These seven trends are shown on the slide below (click on the image to download the entire slide deck).Continue reading “Two Major Trends in Digital Health”
The other day I was giving a talk at the Danish hospital “Nordsjællands Hospital” as part of their research day.
I was trying to talk about the challenges that the Danish healthcare system is facing and how technology plays a role here. I also presented the new Department of Health Technology at the Technical University of Denmark, emphasising that health technology is both the “wet“, the “dry“, and the “digital“.Continue reading “[Personal] Health Technology – Research & Trends”
I was visting my old friend and phd student Steven Houben the other day who invited me to connect up with the Ubicomp crew at Lancaster University — and in particular to meet Sumi Helal, who is now appointed Chair in Digital Health.
While being there, I gave a talk. The title, abstract, and slides are available here.
Title: Personal Health Technology — Opportunities and Examples
Abstract: In this talk I will provide an overview of the research done at the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (CACHET). I will provide the background of this research, define what we mean by personal health technology and how this related to other types of health technology, and come with concrete examples from our different research projects. In particular, I will use my own research into the use of smartphones in the monitoring and treatment of mental health, as an example.
