Abstract: Cardiovascular disease is one of the most significant diseases in China. We work on wearable sensing and medical big data to prevent it. In our previous studies, we proposed the AI-driven cuff-less blood pressure detection based on data fusion for wearable applications. We also developed the low power ECG and EMG chips for wearable devices and remote controls. The spatial-temporal deep neural network for ECG signals was proposed to improve the accuracy of automatic diagnosis of 9 types of cardiac arrhythmias. The developed wearable system has been applied to monitoring the life signal of submerged members in deep manned submersibles and served for more than 3.62 million family users in China. In the area of medical big data analysis, we processed 18 M electronic medical records (EMR) in Shenzhen city, and several cardiovascular disease risk models were developed to provide decision-making aided information for public health management in Shenzhen.
