ICTR-WIHSE Interdisciplinary Symposium

Friday, October 30
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
A Virtual Event

Detecting and Managing Balance and Mobility Phenotypes using Next Generation Technologies: Artificial Intelligence, Biomechanical Sensing, and Beyond

 An ICTR-WIHSE Interdisciplinary Symposium 

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has rich resources in computer sciences, engineering, kinesiology, and health sciences to detect, manage, and improve balance and mobility phenotypes through next generation technologies.  This interdisciplinary symposium will convene UW-Madison researchers and clinicians in the areas of artificial intelligence, sensing technologies, clinical medicine, kinesiology, and other health fields.

This Virtual symposium will feature live panel presentations and interactive “lunchroom” sessions to foster interdisciplinary collaboration on future research designs and applications

Event Goals:

  1. Increase awareness of state-of-the-art research being conducted at UW-Madison.
  2. Create a community collaboration using transdisciplinary approaches.
  3. Foster and support new interdisciplinary research resulting in funding and health system interventions.

Focus Areas:

  • Gait/balance sensing
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Longitudinal cohorts/data sets/human subjects (MIDAS, CAARN, SHOW)
