The Center of Innovation(COI) Program【Center of Innovation for creation of a health-conscious society to realize healthy and fulfilling life, and strengthen family ties through unobtrusive sensing and daily health screening】
By allowing individuals and their families to constantly monitor and detect changes in their lifestyles and health, we aim to create a ful_lling and vibrant society based on strong societal bonds, in which people look out for and support those around them. To that end, we are working to develop micro-scale ingestible and patch-type sensors that allow peoples’ health and behavior to be tracked day-to-day in an unobtrusive manner, as well as a centralized, cloud-based, secure management system for storing collected data and other important information, including genome data.
