IoT with Edge Intelligence for Healthcare Application

Problem Statement

Demonstrate an AI platform that optimises edge computing for healthcare IoT products in a hospital setting, so that processing need not be done in the cloud; processing can be done at the edge nodes, or at the gateways. This will reduce unnecessary data traffic and processing latency, and is important for applications such as critical patient monitoring and analysis. Focus should be placed on designing and developing gateways, with associated sensor nodes for various patient monitoring applications.
