Uttam Ghosh,Ph.D., associate professor of cybersecurity, and Nadine Shillingford, Ph.D. chair and associate professor, computer science and data science, received Third Place, Best Paper in the Full Paper category at the Sixth IFIP International Internet of Things Conference. The paper is titled “Federated Edge-Cloud Framework for Heart Disease Risk Prediction Using Blockchain.”
“The IFIP conference is one of the most popular gatherings for research on the Internet of Things,” says Dr. Ghosh. “It is a great honor to have our work recognized among such an impressive group of peers.”
Drs. Ghosh and Shillingford offer insights into the latest innovations, challenges, and opportunities in IoT, covering a wide array of topics, including IoT architectures, security and privacy, data analytics, edge computing, and applications in various domains. Their paper was selected from among 84 full papers that were submitted for the conference.
Their research is funded through a 2023 – 2024 Faculty Research Initiative grant from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and the Novartis US Foundation. The goal for the grant is to develop Fore❤️Care, a smart application for multi-parametric risk modeling for heart disease prediction. The app will use a multi-factor, risk prediction framework in an edge-cloud paradigm to predict threats to heart health.
