      • Healthy Cities in China, CES 2015 Interview

        The Healthy Cities Project in China is one where mobile devices, mobile health mini-hubs, and sensors are the key way that patients, doctors, government, and enterprises can input, monitor, and access vital health statistics and other information in the cloud. The data flows in and out are based upon access controls. This system is important for study, because already 20 million people are using it in China, and it is a fully established infrastructure in those cities where it has been deployed. In the US, the Healthy Cities project is being studied by academics to see how it could be replicated in the US marketplace. The project is complex, and the World Privacy Forum is interested in the privacy and security specifications, and implications. Much interest in health data in the cloud has grown from the Healthy Cities project, among other projects. We fully expect this trend to continue. This video is an introduction to the Healthy Cities Project, with a look at some of the mini-hubs, some sensors, and is well-described by one of the experts working on the project, Andrew Ling. This video was filmed at CES 2015.

          • The new world of advanced health sensors

            03:35

            from World Privacy Forum / Added

            Health sensors -- devices that can detect blood pressure and other bio readings -- have advanced tremendously in the past few years. While many are familiar with fitness devices that monitor activities such as number of footsteps, new and very sophisticated sensors are gathering much more detailed and intensive information. For example, clinical-grade optical sensors can measure a variety of bio-readings to new degrees of accuracy and detail. In this video filmed at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, we explore some of the new sensors, what they can measure, how they have been used in clinical settings in the past, what role predictive analytics plays, and more.

                02:56

                from World Privacy Forum / Added

                Telemedicine is all about finding solutions for the times when a visit to a doctor's office isn't possible, and a phone call isn't enough for a visual diagnosis. Sleek wheeled robots that allow for visual communication is one of the new ways being used to connect doctors and patients. The Mayo Clinic, Kaiser, and other health providers are in testing to see how doctors can use telemedicine robots to conduct patient interactions. In this video, the company Double Robotics walks us through how the robots look, move, and operate (via an iPad) and how they are already being used in clinical settings today.

                  02:52

                  from World Privacy Forum / Added

                  In this video, the SMACS access control technology is used to conduct a 3D biometric scan at an entry point and grant or deny a person access, including in a potential hostage situation. It is a good example of how biometrics technologies are used today in commercial environments. More info on SMACS: SMACS stands for Smart Airlock Control System. These systems are used commercially, for example, in some Swiss banks and in a variety of sensitive data centers, airports, and other physical locations where entry must be secure. SMACS systems can contain a variety of sophisticated 3D biometric scanners, for example, to determine how many people are in an entry area, with some systems also using 3D face recognition readers. This video is part of the World Privacy Forum series of biometric videos. This footage was shot on location in London, at the Biometrics 2013 conference.
