Advanced technology may radically change the way we perceive our healthcare system –
utilizing creativity to make people more healthy
Professor Jan Madsen, PhD Deputy Director of DTU Compute, Technical University of Denmark, presents Digital Guardian Angels: Point-of-Care Healthcare Devices:
Digital Guardian Angels, are tiny healthcare companions which continuously collect, process and transmit data about our health condition, protecting us against diseases and warning us against potentially threatening environmental conditions. Devices that allow us to live a safe and secure life.
By designing advanced computer systems that leverages the knowledge of doctors, combining it with science and the power of microchips and smartphones, Jan shows fascinating solutions to solving actual real-life problems – for example improving how to detect initial stages of cancer.
Professor Madsen shares his findings on how he is utilizing creativity to make people more healthy at Creative Mornings:
Jan Madsen is Professor in Computer-Based Systems at Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU Compute), Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He is working on design, modeling, analysis, optimization and construction of microelectronic, microfluidic and microbiological computing systems. He is heading a research group on Embedded Systems Engineering and is Deputy Director of DTU Compute. He is national ICT expert for EU Horizon 2020, has served on the panel of Computer Science in the Swedish Research Council, and is serving on the panel of Nano-Tera, a Swiss Interdisciplinary Research Program on engineering complex systems. He has had leading roles in many national and international research projects, spanning Basic Research, such as a Chinese-Danish Basic Research Center for theoretical foundation for Cyber-Physical Systems and a pan-European Network-of-Excellence in Embedded Systems Design, and Applied Research, such as several ARTEMIS projects (EU Joint undertaking for Public-Private-Partnership in Embedded Systems). He was the lead delegate for Denmark in the Governing Board of ARTEMIS, during its first 5-years. He holds 2 patents on a self-healing computer architecture from which he has co-founded the spin-off company Biomicore.
