New project accepted: MAGPIE: Mobile computing with AGents and Publish/subscribe for Intelligent u-hEalthcare

The context of this project is the Personal Health Systems (PHS) used in the field of ubiquitous healthcare. The particular goals to achieve are the development of a multiagent platform (MAP) integrated with the Android OS, with the aim of facilitating the development of mobile applications for monitoring chronic illnesses; and to study how to apply concepts from Distributed Event Based Systems (DEBS) into PHS with the aim of helping patients to connect with other patients. With this project we pretend to illustrate how we can improve the patient’s quality of life using MAP and DEBS technologies. Such an agent-based PHS for Android would be a clear step forward in the state-of-the-art, and would allow deploying this platform for future eHealth projects. This project will also setup a strong collaboration with the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, BarcelonaTech.
