Additional publication opportunities:
Social goods are products and services that could be provided through private enterprises, government or non-profit institutions. It will benefit several people with special needs, including older adults, the performance of sports, and young people. Social goods are related to healthcare, safety, sports, environment, democracy, computer science, and human rights.
Sensors may be included in the development of solutions for social good that promote the support of different physical activities, air quality, temperature. The current pandemic scenario associated with the dispersion of coronavirus over the world highlights the critical role of sensors that can support the control and treatment of different diseases. The use of computer science technologies will support multiple cross-domain fields. Mobile devices include different types of sensors. These sensorial units include accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, microphone, and Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver. These sensors can be used to create numerous solutions to promote social good. Also, smart environments include multiple types of sensors such as door sensors, contact sensors, motion sensors, and light sensors. The sensors can promote the recognition of different parameters. Furthermore, mobile devices are widely used, such as smartphone, tablets, and smartwatches. Mobile devices have different capabilities for the improvement of the results of Social Good solutions. The accuracy and statistical analysis of these systems are essential for their acceptance.
Human-Computer interaction and social networks help in the creation of diverse solutions and opportunities for the different types of people. The different environments can use some various technologies and architectures. Low-cost sensors can be used for the monitoring of different kinds of people, including electroencephalography, electrocardiography, and electromyography.
Sensorial systems promote the creation of medical solutions that supports the preliminary diagnosis of various diseases. Furthermore, the Internet of Things, Smart-cities, distributed sensing and Fog computing are representative examples of new information and communication technologies (ICT) paradigms that aim to describe a dynamic and globally cooperative infrastructure built upon objects’ intelligence and self-configuring capabilities. These connected objects are finding their way into our pockets, vehicles, urban areas and infrastructure.
The use of mobile devices is growing in different daily activities, and their use started in young people. Still, older adults are now using this type of devices. Technological tools are widely improving, and they include different sensors, which can acquire different physical and physiological data. The development of these systems is involved in the development of ICT technologies for well-being. Besides, the e-Health and m-Health solutions may not act only in the treatment and monitoring stages of different diseases.
Moreover, it can act as preventive, promoting healthy lifestyles and active coaching to avoid unhealthy habits. There are various solutions currently under development related to this field. These solutions can improve our quality of life and be used to the design and development of novel technologies for social help. It is a multidisciplinary and extensive subject for public health well-being. Additionally, Internet of Things applications provide a continuous stream of data collected in real-time. The data collected can be combined with machine learning methods to predict unexpected events in the context of a smart city. These cyber-physical systems are intelligent objects that can be the basis to develop enhanced technologies for social good.
In the GOODTECHS conference, we are hence interested in experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects and technologies for social good. We are not considering only the so-called first world as the scenario for this evolution. We also refer to those areas where ICT is currently less widespread, hoping that it may represent a societal development opportunity rather than a source for further divide.
This event is organized by EAI.
EAI – European Alliance for Innovation is a non-profit organization and a professional community established in cooperation with the European Commission to empower the global research and innovation, and to promote cooperation between European and International ICT communities.
EAI’s vision is to foster excellence in research and innovation on the principles of transparency, objectivity, equality, and openness. Our guiding principle is community cooperation to create better research, provide fair recognition of excellence and transform best ideas into commercial value proposition.
EAI‘s mission is to create an environment that rewards excellence transparently, and builds recognition objectively regardless of age, economic status or country of origin, where no membership fees or closed door committees stand in the way of your research career.
