Early Warning Systems (EWS) based on biometric data are used to alert health-care providers and authorities about emerging health problems on the individual level. Systems based on several different types of input parameters have recently entered the market.
Investigations and documentation of the correspondence between physiological processes related to diseases and biometric measurements. Detection of deviations in non-uniformly sampled data with different noise sources.
• A clinical study needs to be performed in order to establish a correspondence between biometric data and pathological conditions. The first project will look into correlations between blood glucose and infections.
• To be able to distinguish deviations caused by infections from natural changes caused by e.g. diet, a carefully planned design of experiments must be performed. From a statistical point of view, it would be preferable with frequently sampling. This clearly contradicts with the preference for most patients. A reasonable trade-off must therefore be made in the design of the experiment.
• A randomized control study in collaboration with UNN.
• Time series methods, nonparametric smoothing, scale-space methods will be applied. The problem is related to statistical quality control so many of the existing methods in that area will be utilized.

Detection and predictions of diseases on individual level, better insulin dosage prediction.
Products based on the above-mentioned technology and glucose measurement devices. There is a potential for both new hardware product and new services that can be offered by both health institutions and hardware vendors.
