Wearable Internet of Things (wIoT) together with deep learning is revolutionizing the smart health and wellbeing applications. Predominantly IoT devices are good at acquiring medical data and later sending it cloud. Edge-based deep learning infuse intelligence in terms of processing, analysis and inference on edge near wearables. Edge deep learning not only offload the cloud but also ensure high-throughput, low-latency solutions. With edge deep learning, the data is processed on edge leading to improved privacy and security as now the data is not transferred to cloud for inference. Resource constraints on the edge and endpoint IoT devices pose challenges in adopting deep learning solutions. Systems and algorithms deployed in health and fitness devices require research on efficient approaches for signal sensing, analysis and prediction. Recently, deep learning models are increasingly deployed on wearable and edge devices for neural prediction and inference. Modern smartwatches and smart textiles are health as well as fitness device. Deep learning on edge also allows for personalization of medical solutions that enhances the user’s experience. Increasingly more wearables in health and fitness now rely on voice-based assistants. Recently, several custom chips with medical machine learning functionalities are developed to further advance edge deep learning. We live in exciting times when wearables and deep learning are growing in parallel and together creating tremendous impact on smart health & fitness devices, systems and services.

Paper Submission and Publication:
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (up to 6 pages) for technical content including figures and references. Submitted papers should be formatted according to the two-column IEEE conference template. Authors should make sure to use the conference mode of the template, i.e., LaTeX users must use the conference option of the IEEEtran document class. You can download the IEEE conference style- download the template. Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS as a single PDF file on US Letter size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (the PDF-A standard complies with that). Prior to submission, ensure that any running headers/footers, page numbering, as well as blue underlining for URLs and email addresses has been removed. Manuscripts should be original and not submitted or published anywhere else. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members. All presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings to be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Title: The challenges of eXplainable AI for early detection of cognitive decline

Abstract: Our ageing society claims for innovative tools to early detect symptoms of cognitive decline. Sensorized smart-homes and artificial intelligence (AI) methods allow detecting a decline of the cognitive functions of the elderly. However, existing tools provide limited support to clinicians in making a diagnosis. Indeed, most existing AI systems do not provide any explanation of the reason why a given prediction was computed. In this talk, I will survey this challenging problem and existing solutions. I will also present a novel AI system to recognize early symptoms of cognitive decline in smart-homes, which is able to explain the reason of predictions in natural language. The method relies on clinical models that consider behavioral anomalies, spatial disorientation, and wandering behaviors. An AI-fueled dashboard allows clinicians to inspect anomalies together with the explanations of predictions. I will also report on preliminary experiments carried out with a large set of real world subjects, including people with MCI and people with dementia.
