Wearable AI Sensor Supports Personalized Health Data Processing, Analysis

By Shania Kennedy

June 09, 2023 – New research from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) shows that a flexible, stretchable computing chip worn directly on the skin can collect and analyze health data in real time using artificial intelligence (AI).

The device, known as a neuromorphic computing chip, uses semiconductors and electrochemical transistors to collect data from biosensors touching the skin. Unlike other wearables, such as smartwatches, which leave a small gap between the user’s skin and the device, the chip is designed to be worn directly on the skin to improve sensor accuracy and data collection.
