Image and Signal Processing for Networked E health Applications Book Review:

E-Health applications facilitate the exchange of information between clinicians or between institutions, reducing costs, extending the scope and reach of medical facilities, enhancing the quality of service offered on- and off-site, and provides new means of medical supervision and preemptive medicine. Currently, the integration of medical networking and medical information systems is treated as an obvious need; standalone medical networking environments are no longer a reality and the term "telemedicine" is in practice used interchangeably with e-Health.This book provides an overview of the field of Networked e-health applications and telemedicine and its supporting technologies. Chapters focus on signals, signal processing, electroencephalogram (EEG) and the Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), medical imaging, as well as a look at medical signal processing and classification from the point of view of urgent medical support, where not every possible type of medical equipment is readily available. Also covered is the encoding for transmission of medical data. Compression is of central importance, as is loss of information and ways to minimize it. The final section of the book addresses the design, implementation, and operation of e-Health systems.

Human Activity Recognition Book Review:

Learn How to Design and Implement HAR Systems The pervasiveness and range of capabilities of today’s mobile devices have enabled a wide spectrum of mobile applications that are transforming our daily lives, from smartphones equipped with GPS to integrated mobile sensors that acquire physiological data. Human Activity Recognition: Using Wearable Sensors and Smartphones focuses on the automatic identification of human activities from pervasive wearable sensors—a crucial component for health monitoring and also applicable to other areas, such as entertainment and tactical operations. Developed from the authors’ nearly four years of rigorous research in the field, the book covers the theory, fundamentals, and applications of human activity recognition (HAR). The authors examine how machine learning and pattern recognition tools help determine a user’s activity during a certain period of time. They propose two systems for performing HAR: Centinela, an offline server-oriented HAR system, and Vigilante, a completely mobile real-time activity recognition system. The book also provides a practical guide to the development of activity recognition applications in the Android framework.

GeoSensor Networks Book Review:

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed proceedings of the Second GeoSensor Networks Conference, held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, in October 2006. The conference addressed issues related to the collection, management, processing, analysis, and delivery of real-time geospatial data using distributed geosensor networks. This represents an evolution of the traditional static and centralized geocomputational paradigm. The 13 carefully reviewed and selected papers included in the volume constitute extended versions of the papers presented at the conference. They are preceded by an introduction written by the volume editors. The book is structured in sections on Data Acquisition and Processing, Data Analysis and Integration, and Applications. The papers represent key research areas that are fundamental in order to realize the full potential of the emerging geosensor network paradigm. The contributions cover theentire spectrum of the field from low-level energy consumption issues at the individual sensor level to the high-level abstraction of events and ontologies or models to recognize and monitor phenomena using geosensor networks.
