Frontiers in Telemedicine and Internet of Things in Health Monitoring

Recent research in Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) has focused on the development of highly intelligent algorithms, which greatly assists in the development of smart assistants in the near future. Both IoT and AI have become the most popular technique in recent decades with various real-time applications. Currently, IoT devices have become an integral part of our daily lives, and it generates quintillion bytes of data every day. The efficient use of machine learning algorithms reads, interprets, and utilize this data to develop smart assistants for future applications. The convergence of IoT and AI empowers the development of machines and techniques that become smart assistant for us.
