Our guest speaker is Dr Mufti Mahmud who specialises in neuroengineering.

In recent years the world has seen an ever-increasing number of people with neurological disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer's Disease, and Parkinson's Disease.

Health status monitoring of the sufferer, along with their regular medication, is a unique way to assist them in their daily activities. While the world is falling short in providing personalised support to these people through carers, thanks to intelligent and innovative solutions, the management of people with these conditions is now possible.

This talk will shed light on how people with such incurable diseases can be assisted in their daily routines through AI enabled devices.
