Title of Keynote Speech: Miniature Wireless Devices for Closed-loop Health Management

Abstract of Keynote Speech: Mobile technologies have changed our lifestyle significantly. Personalized tools such as wearable and implantable devices through wireless communication and power transfer have been utilized in healthcare to provide unique functions and reduce costs. Individuals can be empowered with tailored solutions without limitation in mobility or daily activities. Quantitative documentation of physiological parameters presents more accurate assessment. Direct electrical stimulation on tissues or organs can restore or improve body functions. Continuous monitoring and adaptive administration of therapy to treat symptoms via wireless body networking can adaptively optimize the closed-loop health management.

This presentation discusses the development of wireless micro devices and integrated systems for clinical applications. The systems are based on batteryless, wireless implants with enhancement in miniaturization and functionalization. Miniaturization owing to flexible substrates and the elimination of bulky batteries allows endoscopic or minimally invasive procedures to deploy the implants without painful surgeries. Several diagnosis and therapeutic treatment examples for management of gastric and neural disorders, particularly as closed-loop systems, will be introduced. These examples aim to inspire new system application ideas to address the implementation and cost challenges in healthcare and enable integration of electronics and medicines to improve human welfare and assist better living.

Title of Keynote Speech: Engineering Medicine Biology – A Win-Win strategy to face the challenge of Super-Aged Society

Abstract of Keynote Speech: We are facing the challenge of super aged society in Taiwan. To live longer, our aim is to live better. Chewing is one of the basic requirements to live better and longer.

The human mandible is connected to the skull by two temporomandibular joints (TMJ). The articulating surfaces of these joints are incongruent, which provides the mandible with a wide range of movability respected to the skull. In between the articulating surfaces, a cartilaginous articular disc is situated. Generally, impaired of the TMJ function maybe due to different etiologies, such as injury to the jaw, muscle hypertonicity of the head and neck, grinding or clenching the teeth, displacement of the disc and different kind of arthritis. Some surveys have reported that 20-25% of the population exhibit one or more symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD).

Our team has devoted for a long time in the etiology and management of TMD. But the success rate remains not satisfied. To be the bridge from basic research to clinical application, engineering medicine biology may be applied in clinic as dawn in the dark to face the challenge of super aged society for future demand.

Title of Keynote Speech: An intelligent heart rhythm monitoring device for early heart disease detection and prevention: From Algorithm towards Commercialization

Abstract of Keynote Speech: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the top silent killer in the world which cause 17.9 million people die every year and contribute to 31% of all global deaths. One approach to improve the heart care quality is by deploying "homecare monitoring" to reduce the risk of fatality, so that the public could acquire electrocardiogram (ECG) signal at anywhere and anytime for frequent monitoring of cardiac conditions. Arrhythmia is one of the important precursors for cardiovascular disease that can be diagnosed via ECG. This presentation discusses a design of an intelligent heart rhythm monitoring device which able to detect and self-classify multiple life-threatening arrhythmias as a strong indicator of various CVDs based on single-lead ECG. The invention is designed based on integration of multi-stage artificial intelligent (AI) machine learning algorithms, Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) architecture, field-programmable-gate-array (FPGA), and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology. The sharing includes the algorithm exploration based on the consideration of targeted accuracy and computation performance, the design of the intelligent heart monitor using hardware/software co-design technique, as well as the functionalities supported by mobile app for the purpose of real-time heart rhythm monitoring and arrhythmia detection. In addition to that, the challenge and R&D experience of the invention along the journey from algorithm modelling towards commercialization throughout different stages of Technology Readiness Level (TRL) will also be discussed.

Title of Invited Talk: Application of patient-specific mobile extended reality (MXR) system

Abstract of Invited Talk: In recent years, the remarkable development of digital dentistry has created a requirement for the clinician to process three-dimensional (3D) images of each patient specifically. These popular 3D images can be teeth models – acquired from intra-oral scanner (IOS), bone models – acquire from CT or MRI scanning, and designed objects such as surgical guides, teeth- or implant-supported prosthesis. After plenty of image processing steps supported by computer-aided design software (CAD), those models can be physically presented following the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) process such as milling or printing. This manufacturing process is compulsory in many medical and dental applications such as surgical plans, surgical simulations, surgical guides, or final prosthesis. On the other hand, virtual 3D model is an alternative format that can be applied in a variety of applications in dentistry such as dental education, communication between dentists - dental technicians, patient education and consultation, telemedicine, etc. Mobile extended reality (MXR) are burgeoning technology that has the potential to greatly enhance patient care. Visualizing patient-specific 3D imaging data in these enhanced virtual environments may improve surgeons’ understanding of anatomy and surgical pathology, thereby allowing for improved surgical planning, superior intra-operative guidance, and ultimately improved patient care. It is important that radiologists are familiar with these technologies, especially since the number of institutions utilizing extended reality is increasing. This topic gives an overview of MXR and describes the workflow required to create anatomical 3D models for use in MXR using smartphone devices.

Title of Invited Talk: A smart farming approaches for Cucumis Melo L. leaf diseases detection

Abstract of Invited Talk: Agriculture industry is moving toward autonomy due to shortage of manpower in recent years and it will soon become much worse as time passes. Advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) can provide realistic solutions to the challenges are facing. Therefore, this research focuses on applying an AI&oT approach regarding smart farming for the detection of Muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) leaf diseases. Powdery mildew, has been a long concern to farmers and has always been among the first studied plant pathogen, along with anthracnose and verticillium wilt diseases were included in the scope of this study.

In this work, a system for autonomous collection of leaf photos and environmental parameters was built. The microcontroller reads values from sensors (temperature, air humidity, soil moisture and lux) from the environment of the cantaloupe orchard. NodeMCU ESP8266 receives and transmits data to Output devices and displays it via Blynk App of smart phone. The camera captures images of Cucumis Melo L leaves and stems that will be displayed on a smartphone and automatically saved in Google Drive. The photos will then be uploaded to a cloud storage embedded with an AI model to determine whether the pictured leaf contains any of the included diseases. The result will then be sent to the farm manager/workers and suggest management solutions. The deep learning model has been trained to achieve up to 90% of accuracy while detecting healthy and unhealthy leaves with the included pathogens. The developed system is among the first steps of smart farming in developing countries with many challenges.
