Dr. Kotz is the Champion International Professor and Associate Dean for the Sciences at Dartmouth College.
Abstract: Mobile computing and sensing technologies present exciting opportunities for healthcare. Prescription wireless sensors worn by patients can automatically deliver medical data to care providers, dramatically improving their ability to diagnose, monitor, and manage a range of medical conditions. Using the mobile phones that patients already carry to provide connectivity between sensors and providers is essential to keeping costs low and deployments simple. Unfortunately, cyber attacks on privacy-sensitive and safety-critical applications can have significant consequences for patients.
He will discuss his team's ongoing development of a next-generation mHealth architecture solution (Amulet),that provides strong security and privacy guarantees while remaining easy to use.
