What if wearable electronics could monitor your health and detect disease before symptoms appear?

That is exactly the vision of Sihong Wang and his research team at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago.

“With this work, we have bridged wearable technology with artificial intelligence and machine learning to create a powerful device that can analyze health data directly on our own bodies,” Wang say.

The assistant professor and his team envision a future where wearable biosensors can track health indicators, including sugar, oxygen and metabolites in people’s blood.

With this goal in mind, they have developed a chip that can collect data from multiple biosensors and draw conclusions about a person’s health using machine learning.

One of the biggest challenges, Wang said, was creating a device that integrates seamlessly with the skin.

So the team turned to polymers, which have the ability to stretch and bend. They then merged them into a device that enables the AI-based analysis of health data.

The chip — called a neuromorphic computer chip — doesn’t work like a typical computer. Instead, it functions more like a human brain, with the ability to store and analyze data in an integrated way.
