Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Citation (Scopus)


We argue that recent technology developments hold great promises for health and wellbeing. In our view, recent advances of (1) smart tools and wearable sensors of diverse kinds, (2) data collection and data mining methods, (3) 3D visual recording and visual processing methods, (4) 3D models of the environment with robust physics engine, and last but not least, (5) new applications of human computing and crowdsourcing started the revolution. We are neither claiming nor excluding that human intelligence will be reached in some years from now, but make the above claim, which is both weaker and stronger. We believe that fast developments for health and wellbeing are the question of active collaboration between health and wellbeing experts and motivated engineers.
