IoT-Based Real-Time updating multi-layered learning system applied for a special care context during COVID-19

Erişen, Serdar
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for increased research, this study aimed to develop a real-time learning system to provide infection control for residential special care contexts and in doing so, explored different crowdsourcing technologies, spatial usages, and data processing methods within the scope of smart health-care systems and environments. Experiments were conducted in the selected special care indoor environment, which was fitted with sensors and Internet of Things devices, from which generated data were used to train Convolutional Neural Networks, Long-Short Term Memory, and Binary Layered Long-Short Term Memory neural networks. Sequential neural networks were multi-layered and configured in tandem and from these, the real-time updating learning system was developed. The system monitors the user activity and environmental data and predicts critical cases to send alerts to caregivers. Findings showed that stacking neural networks over one another increases the efficiency in updating the training data of real-time learning system. Overall, the study concludes that the developed real-time learning system is lightweight, fast, and efficient for infection control and special care at the private scale and can be multiplied at multiple nodes of larger networks of smart health services and environments.


ARAS Human Activity Datasets In Multiple Homes with Multiple Residents
Alemdar, Hande; Incel, Ozlem Durmaz; Ersoy, Cem (2013-05-08)
The real world human activity datasets are of great importance in development of novel machine learning methods for automatic recognition of human activities in smart environments. In this study, we present the details of ARAS (Activity Recognition with Ambient Sensing) human activity recognition datasets that are collected from two real houses with multiple residents during two months. The datasets contain the ground truth labels for 27 different activities. Each house was equipped with 20 binary sensors o...
Wireless sensor networks for healthcare: A survey
Alemdar, Hande (2010-10-28)
Becoming mature enough to be used for improving the quality of life, wireless sensor network technologies are considered as one of the key research areas in computer science and healthcare application industries. The pervasive healthcare systems provide rich contextual information and alerting mechanisms against odd conditions with continuous monitoring. This minimizes the need for caregivers and helps the chronically ill and elderly to survive an independent life, besides provides quality care for the babi...
Prioritization and R&D Support Mechanisms: Turkish Case
Gurbuz, Kubra; Erdil, Erkan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-03-30)
This study aims to detect differences in the features of the proposed and supported projects for different priority technology areas (PTAs) of the TUBITAK Prioritized Areas R&D Grant Program together with the analysis on the output, input, and behavioral additionality of the supported projects. Non-existence of a previous study on the evaluation of the Prioritized Grant Program of TUBITAK contributes to the originality of this study in addition to being one of the limited examples about the studies on the e...
Wireless networking in tunnelling projects
Nielsen, Yasemin; Koseoglu, Ozan (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-01)
Emerging collaborative technologies and working methods often require tremendous engineering and organisational efforts for successful implementation of information and communication technologies (ICTs). According to a research conducted in Turkish construction industry, most of the problems that occur during the construction phase are due to lack of co-operation and communication between designers and contractors and lack of prompt expert decisions during on-site engineering. Similar to any major construct...
Optimum design and operation of 'a pump-piping-storage system'
Kaplan, H; Seireg, A; Dölen, Melik (Inderscience Publishers, 2001-01-01)
The study reported in this paper is undertaken to develop a computer simulation and an optimum design and operation strategy for a general storage system. The influence of various design parameters on the total operation cost of the system for a general delivery regime is also studied.
