UBC Statistics Seminar on November 2 at 4pm: Systems Monitoring and Personalized Health Management

Thursday, November 2, 2017 -
16:00 to 17:00
Kwok L. Tsui, Professor, Systems Engineering & Engineering Management City University of Hong Kong
Seminar
Room 4192, Earth Sciences Building (2207 Main Mall)

Abstract:  Due to the advancement of computation power, sensor technologies, and data collection tools, the field of systems monitoring and health management have been evolved over the past several decades with different names under different application domains, such as statistical process control (SPC), process monitoring, health surveillance, prognostics and health management (PHM), engineering asset management (EAM), personalized medicine, etc. There are tremendous opportunities in interdisciplinary research of system monitoring through integration of SPC, system informatics, data analytics, PHM, and personalized health management. In this talk we will present our views and experience in the evolution of systems monitoring, challenges and opportunities, and applications in machine systems health management as well as human health management.
