Amulet presented at mHealth Summit

logo for the mHealth SummitPerhaps the largest annual event related to mHealth is the mHealth Summit, held near Washington DC.  Today, the summit kicked off with a Privacy & Security Symposium, including a presentation by David Kotz on Developing a Secure mHealth Platform for Wearables, in which he described the Amulet project.  The talk presented the Amulet approach to providing a wearable hub for body-area mHealth applications, and our latest hardware and software prototypes.  The talk generated a lot of interesting questions from the audience of about 60-70 people.

More news once we publish our new paper describing Amulet – hopefully within the next six months.
