Sleep, The Reflection of Health

Wednesday, July 24, 2024 @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Join the IEEE Toronto Instrumentation & Measurement – Robotics & Automation Joint Chapter for a talk on the Sleep, The Reflection of Health, presented by Dr. Nasim Montazeri from Queen’s University. Wednesday, July 24, 2024 @ 4:30 – 5:30 PM Abstract: While sufficient sleep is one of the health pillars, disrupted sleep is linked to adverse health related problems ranging from developmental impairment in children to cardiorespiratory diseases in adults and cognitive decline in older adults. The gold standard in-lab sleep test is inconvenient, expensive and has a long waiting list, making sleep monitoring inaccessible. This talk will highlight the role of new technologies in expanding the scope of sleep monitoring, with a particular focus on solutions enabled by signal processing and artificial intelligence. Dr. Montazeri will present the entire development cycle of a portable sleep monitoring device from crude observation to commercialization and draw examples from different age groups that demonstrate how sleep, when analyzed using customized analytic techniques, can reflect health.
