Engineering and IT researchers from Monash University have combined nanotechnology and AI to create wearable technology for remote health monitoring.They came up with an ultra-thin wearable patch that is worn on the neck to measure speech, neck movement and touch, as well as breathing and heart rates. It does this using a frequency/amplitude-based neural network called Deep Hybrid-Spectro, which automatically monitors multiple biometrics from a single signal.

In a study, the wearable patch was found to disentangle and monitor 11 human health signals with an accuracy of 93%. According to the researchers, this technology could change how remote healthcare is delivered by detecting just five physiological activities associated with the human throat.
