Title: Social Public Health Infrastructure for a Smart City Citizen Patient: Advances and Opportunities for AI Driven Disruptive Innovation

Abstract: Promoting health, preventing disease, and prolonging life are central to the success of any smart city initiative. Today, wireless communication, data infrastructure, and low-cost sensors such as lifestyle and activity trackers are making it increasingly possible for cities to collect, collate, and innovate on developing a smart infrastructure. Combining this with AI driven disruptions for human behavior change can fundamentally transform delivery of public health for the citizen patient. Most urban development government bodies consider such infrastructure to be a distributed ecosystem consisting of physical infrastructure, institutional infrastructure, social infrastructure and economic infrastructure. In this talk we will focus mostly on the social health infrastructure component and first showcase some of the recent initiatives created with the purpose of addressing health which is a key social goal, as a smart city goal. Specifically, we will discuss how technical advances in IoT, recommendation systems, geospatial computing, and digital health therapeutics are creating a new future. Yet, such advances are not addressing the issues of making healthy behavior change sustainable with broad health equity for those that need it most. Overwhelming nature of siloed apps and digital health solutions which often leave the citizens overwhelmed and those most in need underserved. This talk highlights the advances and opportunities created when behavioral economics and public health combine with AI and cloud infrastructure to make smart public health initiatives personalized to each individual citizen patient.

Bio: Prof. Ankur Teredesai is a Full Professor w Tenure of Computer Science & Systems at the School of Engineering & Technology, University of Washington. Today healthcare technolgy solutions are complex, with increasing emphasis on AI driven software. Dr. Teredesai's research on AI Regulation of solutions for personalization of decisions in healthcare has widespread applications. He is an invited member of global industrial and governmental partnerships pushing the boundries of innovation and policy in this field.

Prof. Teredesai has published 100+ papers on machine learning and his work is deployed across various industries (advertising, recommendation systems, global health systems). The work has been recognized in popular press as well as academic citations.

Since 2009 his research contributions have led to advancing our understanding of risk and utilization of chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart failure. In 2015, after years of collaborative and applied research on large clinical and claims datasets, Prof. Teredesai founded KenSci, a spin-off form the University of Washington, which was acquired in 2021.

Prof. Teredesai served as the Information Officer for ACM SIGKDD (Special Interest Group in Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining) from 2006 to 2018 and as past general Chair of KDD 2019. He is currently an associate editor for ACM SIGKDD Explorations and serves on several program committees of conferences in AI & machine learning.

Prof. Teredesai is an active advocate and mentor for non-traditional and women students to take up computing careers.
