Jane You is currently a professor in the Department of Computing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She also serves as the Associate Head of the Department (Research). Prof. You obtained her BEng. in Electronic Engineering from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 1986 and Ph.D in Computer Science from La Trobe University, Australia in 1992. She was a lecturer at the University of South Australia and senior lecturer (tenured) at Griffith University from 1993 till 2002. Prof. You was awarded French Foreign Ministry International Postdoctoral Fellowship in 1993 and worked on the project on real-time object recognition and tracking at Universite Paris XI. She also obtained the Academic Certificate issued by French Education Ministry in 1994.
Prof. Jane You has worked extensively in the fields of image processing, medical imaging, computer-aided detection/diagnosis, pattern recognition. So far, she has more than 200 research papers published. She has been a principal investigator for two ITF project, four GRF projects and many other joint grants since she joined PolyU in late 1998. Prof. You is also a team member for three successful patents (one HK patent, two US patents) and three awards including Hong Kong Government Industrial Awards. Her recent work on retinal imaging has won a Special Prize and Gold Medal with Jury’s Commendation at the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (April 2011) and the second place in an international competition (SPIE Medical Imaging’2009 Retinopathy Online Challenge (ROC’2009)). Her research output on retinal imaging has been successfully led to technology transfer with clinical applications. Prof. You is also an associate editor of Pattern Recognition and other journals.
With the fast development of electronic devices, computer systems and communication networks, nowadays data are produced in ever-increasing quantities, diversities and speed. The advances in sensor technology are literally changing our life in this new era of information world by offering new means for data acquisition in different types of information systems. Although technological progress allows more and more sensors to be produced for various applications, it remains a challenging task to develop high performance sensors which can meet the demanding requirements of sensitivity, reliability, functionality, efficiency and low cost.
This talk presents some of our current R&D work which aims to develop new sensing systems to overcome the limitations of the current products for different applications, which involves both hardware and software development for data acquisition, data management, analysis and mining. To demonstrate the feasibility of our proposed approaches and methodologies, several examples of our prototype systems will be briefly introduced, which includes smart diabetic care, smart fetal monitoring, smart truck loading monitoring and smart building.
