AIoT stands for Artificial Intelligence of Things, which refers to the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies with Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The combination of AI and IoT is intended to create smarter and more efficient devices, systems, and applications. By using AI to analyse and interpret the large amounts of data gathered from IoT devices, AIoT applications can provide insights, predictions, and automations that can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve user experiences. Some of the noted examples of AIoT applications include smart homes, connected vehicles, intelligent manufacturing systems, and smart cities.

On the other hand, big data analytics refers to the process of examining and analyzing large and complex data sets to uncover patterns, correlations, and insights that can be used to make better decisions and improve business outcomes. The term “big data” refers to the massive amounts of data generated by various sources such as social media, sensors, mobile devices, and other digital platforms. The primary goal of big data analytics is to extract useful information from large volumes of data that would be impossible or too time-consuming for humans to analyze manually. By using advanced analytical techniques such as data mining, machine learning, and natural language processing, big data analytics can uncover hidden patterns, identify trends, and extract valuable insights from massive data sets. Big data analytics has many applications across a wide range of industries, including healthcare, finance, marketing, retail, and more. It can be used to improve customer engagement, optimize business operations, reduce costs, and develop new products and services.

AIoT and big data analytics have a lot of potential for transforming healthcare by enabling the development of smarter and more efficient healthcare systems. AIoT devices can collect patient data in real-time from wearable devices, sensors, and other connected devices. Big data analytics can then be used to analyze this data to provide personalized treatment recommendations and to detect early warning signs of health problems. By analyzing large amounts of patient data, big data analytics can be used to predict potential health problems before they occur. This can enable healthcare providers to take proactive measures to prevent or treat these problems before they become more severe.

AIoT and big data analytics can be used to develop more accurate and effective diagnostic tools and treatment plans. For example, machine learning algorithms can be used to analyze medical images and other diagnostic data to identify patterns and make more accurate diagnoses. Big data analytics can be used to optimize healthcare resource allocation, such as hospital bed management, staff scheduling, and medical supply inventory management. This can help healthcare providers to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. AIoT and big data analytics can be used to speed up the drug discovery and development process by identifying potential drug candidates and predicting how they will interact with the body. AIoT and big data analytics can be used to improve patient engagement and adherence to treatment plans. AIoT and big data analytics can be used to manage the health of populations, rather than just individual patients. By analyzing large amounts of data from multiple sources, healthcare providers can identify health trends, risk factors, and patterns of disease across entire populations. This can help healthcare providers to develop targeted interventions and preventive measures to improve population health outcomes.

AIoT and big data analytics can provide real-time insights and decision-making support to healthcare providers. For example, AI algorithms can analyze patient data in real-time to provide clinical decision support to doctors and nurses, such as recommending appropriate treatments based on the patient's condition. AIoT and big data analytics can be used to create smart hospitals that are more efficient and patient-centered. the integration of AIoT and big data analytics in smart healthcare has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry, enabling more personalized, efficient, and effective healthcare services. However, it is important to ensure that these technologies are used in a way that protects patient privacy and confidentiality, and that healthcare providers are equipped with the necessary skills and resources to effectively leverage these technologies.

This book discusses open principles, methods, and healthcare AIoT research issues. It also summarises AIoT research efforts and potential directions.
