    Green Computing and Predictive Analytics for Healthcare excavates the rudimentary concepts of Green Computing, Big Data and the Internet of Things along with the latest research development in the domain of healthcare. It also covers various applications and case studies in the field of computer science with state-of-the-art tools and technologies. The rapid growth of the population is a challenging issue in maintaining and monitoring various experiences of quality of service in healthcare. The coherent usage of these limited resources in connection with optimum energy consumption has been becoming more important. The major healthcare nodes are gradually becoming Internet of Things-enabled, and sensors, work data and the involvement of networking are creating smart campuses and smart houses. The book includes chapters on the Internet of Things and Big Data technologies.


    • Biomedical data monitoring under the Internet of Things
    • Environment data sensing and analyzing
    • Big data analytics and clustering
    • Machine learning techniques for sudden cardiac death prediction
    • Robust brain tissue segmentation
    • Energy-efficient and green Internet of Things for healthcare applications
    • Blockchain technology for the healthcare Internet of Things
    • Advanced healthcare for domestic medical tourism system
    • Edge computing for data analytics

    This book on Green Computing and Predictive Analytics for Healthcare aims to promote and facilitate the exchange of research knowledge and findings across different disciplines on the design and investigation of healthcare data analytics. It can also be used as a textbook for a master’s course in biomedical engineering. This book will also present new methods for medical data evaluation and the diagnosis of different diseases to improve quality-of-life in general and for better integration of Internet of Things into society.
