Alexa, monitor my heart

First contact less cardiac arrest AI system for smart speakers. According to Shyam Gollakota, Justin Chan, and an associate professor in the UW’s Paul G Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering and co-corresponding author Dr. Jacob Sunshine, an assistant professor of anesthesiology and pain medicine at the UW School of Medicine,“A lot of people have smart speakers in their homes, and these devices have amazing capabilities that we can take advantage of. We envision a contact less system that works by continuously and passively monitoring the bedroom for an agonal breathing event, and alerts anyone nearby to come to provide CPR. And then if there’s no response, the device can automatically call 911.
This kind of breathing happens when a patient experiences really low oxygen levels. It’s sort of a guttural gasping noise, and its uniqueness makes it a good audio biomarker to use to identify if someone is experiencing a cardiac arrest.”

Stanford Design ‘EXPE’

Stanford’s Mechanical Engineering Design Group invites you to join us as we celebrate our students’ creative work in design research, design practice, engineering, and manufacturing.

According to Mr. Lokesh Kumar Thakur (Author), Design: Design, “the book is focused on the design and development of a high- energy impact wear device. A comprehensive illustration on designing the newest version of the impact wear tester is explained in detail in order to exhibit how theoretical, virtual and experimental analyses could be integrated while designing a mechanical system.”
