Keynote Title: Empowering Secure and Privacy-Preserving Data Sharing in Intelligent Healthcare Systems

Keynote Abstract:  The healthcare industry has undergone a remarkable digital transformation with the adoption of IoT technologies, leading to a significant increase in the volume and variety of medical data generated. Traditional cloud computing approaches are useful for processing and analyzing healthcare data to deliver high-quality care. However, they encounter challenges related to latency, data privacy, and security. Further, effective data sharing among healthcare institutions faces challenges due to geographical dispersion, different ethical rules and data sharing regulations, and the risks of data breaches. To overcome these challenges, an efficient and secure framework is needed to enable healthcare institutions to share data while preserving data privacy. This talk presents an edge-cloud interplay framework to realize efficient, secure, and privacy-preserving data sharing and processing for intelligent healthcare systems. The framework leverages software-defined 5G and AI-enabled distributed edge-cloud technologies to (i) integrate AI/ML at the intelligent edge (IE) servers for classifying healthcare data and identifying patients’ potential medical conditions; (ii) facilitate real-time service delivery using 5G slices and edge-cloud interplay; and (iii) ensure secure and privacy-preserving health data sharing and processing using blockchain and homomorphic encryption-based federated learning.

Keynote Speaker Biography: Dr. Uttam Ghosh is an Associate Professor of Cybersecurity and the Founder and Director of NSA funded DISCS lab in Computer Science and Data Science at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN, USA. He also serves as a department representative for the Meharry senate. Previously, he held the position of Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Department of Computer Science at Vanderbilt University, where he received the 2018–2019 Junior Faculty Teaching Fellow (JFTF) award. He obtained his MS and PhD in E&ECE from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, and has held post-doctoral positions at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Fordham University, and Tennessee State University in the USA.
