Wearable Internet of Things (wIoT) together with deep learning is revolutionizing the smart health and wellbeing applications. Predominantly IoT devices are good at acquiring medical data and later sending it cloud. Edge-based deep learning infuse intelligence in terms of processing, analysis and inference on edge near wearables. Edge deep learning not only offload the cloud but also ensure high-throughput, low-latency solutions. With edge deep learning, the data is processed on edge leading to improved privacy and security as now the data is not transferred to cloud for inference. Resource constraints on the edge and endpoint IoT devices pose challenges in adopting deep learning solutions. Systems and algorithms deployed in health and fitness devices require research on efficient approaches for signal sensing, analysis and prediction. Recently, deep learning models are increasingly deployed on wearable and edge devices for neural prediction and inference. Modern smartwatches and smart textiles are health as well as fitness device. Deep learning on edge also allows for personalization of medical solutions that enhances the user’s experience. Increasingly more wearables in health and fitness now rely on voice-based assistants. Recently, several custom chips with medical machine learning functionalities are developed to further advance edge deep learning. We live in exciting times when wearables and deep learning are growing in parallel and together creating tremendous impact on smart health & fitness devices, systems and services.
