The world of digital health is transforming the global healthcare landscape. Wearable sensor applications are expected to create a major impact in global healthcare.
Despite the emergence of smart wearable products, there is shortage of effective and systematic human-centered smart care design technology.
Our human ICT convergence research Lab., called H-Lab. in SKKU uniquely aims to interdisciplinary convergence technology collaborating with information and computing, Healthcare technology, and Cognitive design technology. With these in mind, our students called “humaneer” (a portmanteau of humanity and engineer) studies innovative technologies with destructive creativity.
Research topics include: Wearable /Healthcare Devices with Activity-driven Cognition
Prof. Jun-Dong Cho received B.S degree in Electronic Engineering, Sungkyunkwan Univ. in Seoul, Korea, 1980, M.S degree from Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY, 1989, and Ph.D. degree from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, 1993, both in computer science. He was a Senior CAD Engineer at Samsung Electronics, Co., Ltd. He is now in several faculty positions in Sungkyunkwan University: Professor of Dept. of Electronic Engineering (director of VADA Lab. http://vada.skku.ac.kr), Chair of Dept. of Human ICT Convergence (Director of H-Lab) http://humanict.skku.edu, and Adj. Professor, Dept. of Interaction Science.
He received the Best paper award at the 1993 Design Automation Conference. He has been an IEEE Senior Member since April 1996. He received “Research Achievement Award” from Ministry of Knowledge and Economics, Oct. 2012. His research interests are in the area of human computer interaction design for multimedia and healthcare devices. His recent work is as follows: “3D Image Recognition System on Chip for Smart Car”, “Development of Manufacturing 6DOF robot for assembling mobile IT products”,“ 3D Image Visual Fatigue Reduction based on Emotion and Context Cognition”, “Bio Signal Processing-based Implantable System”, “Mobile Homecare Monitoring System”, and “Enhancing of Usability of Smart care Wearable devices”.
