IEEE Launches Major e-health pilot in India

Last September, we reported on the successful launch of the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Challenge RFID Individual Tracking and Records Management (RFID-ITRM) pilot in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). We are pleased to announce that a second and larger test-bed for this project has successfully deployed in Ahmedabad, India, an impoverished slum community of about 100,000 people. The system is allowing health care workers to track patients in the city and is saving and improving lives every day.  A video of the solution is available here.

IEEE CIS GOLD Announcement

 

Competition Call for IEEE CIS GOLDs and Students: Pitch your CI Research Idea and Win an iPad 2!!! 

The CIS GOLD subcommittee is hosting a “Novel CI Research Idea Pitch” competition during the Student and GOLD reception at WCCI 2012 in Brisbane Australia. 

Your Challenge: Design a one-page research proposal of your Computational Intelligence idea and get a chance to pitch your idea to a panel of CI experts and your peers using an “elevator pitch” (3 minute time limit).  An “elevator pitch” is a short summary of a research idea.  The research area must be “computational intelligence” and the participants must “sell” their idea to the judges to qualify for prizes.  A panel of three CI experts will select 3 best pitches and the audience (your peers) will rank 1st, 2nd and 3rdwinner through secret ballot.  Prizes will include 1 iPad for 1st winner, certificates and free full year IEEE CIS memberships. Register now for a chance to be heard!

Submission Guidelines:  Interested GOLDs and Students should consult the full Brief and Submission Guidelines.  Registration and Submission Deadline:  June 11th 2012, Midnight EST.  (You can register for the competition without submitting the research summary).

Register Now (Space is Limited!): http://tinyurl.com/7tror22

*Disclaimer:  The iPad prize does not apply to countries officially embargoed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.  In accordance with U.S. law, IEEE is unable to provide such goods to OFAC embargoed countries.  In the case where the first place winner comes from an OFAC embargoed country, no iPad will be awarded.
