Lecture: Assistive Technologies in Healthcare
Speaker: Prof. Yu Hongnian
Venue: Lecture Room on the 18th floor, Century Building, East Campus
Date: Saturday, January 5, 2019
Prof. Yu of Bournemouth University, UK, is a member of Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET/IEE) and IEEE senior member. He formerly worked at the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom, John Moores University and the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom. He is an internationally renowned expert in the field of intelligent control and robotics.
He has long been engaged in the research of modeling and optimization of robotics and intelligent control, intelligent digital medical health systems and manufacturing systems. He has achieved a number of innovative achievements and won 8 international awards in the area of Autonomous Robots. He has more than 200 quality academic papers published with leading journals such as the European Journal of Operational Research and the IEEE, UKACC and other proceedings of international academic conferences.
In recent years, he has presided over more than 30 scientific research projects such as the British Natural Science Foundation Project, the EU Fund Project (EU Framework, Horizon 2020, etc.), the Newton Fund Project, and the UK Higher Education Innovation Fund. Prof. Yu has cooperated with a wide range of scientists from countries including China, France, Germany, India, Italy and Japan.
The aging problem calls for the increasingly urgent needs in medical technology and health-assisted technology. With the continuous development of computers, artificial intelligence and robotics, medical health assistive technologies are gradually entering people’s lives. This lecture begins with a brief introduction to Bournemouth University in the United Kingdom, followed by an introduction to Kang’s assistive technology, as well as some foreign research institutions in this area. Then the concepts and methods of adaptive robots, especially HPCPS (Human Adaptive CPS), are discussed, and the research frontier and some application problems of current robots are interpreted. This lecture specifically describes the application prospects of robots in the field of medical health assistive technology.
