    Sensing of type 2 diabetes patients based on Internet of Things solutions: An Extensive survey
    (IGI Global, 2024) Mijwil, Maad M.; Bala, Indu; Ali, Guma; Aljanabi, Mohammad; Abotaleb, Mostafa; Doshi, Ruchi; Hiran, Kamal Kant; El-Kenawy, El-Sayed M.
    Internet of things solutions have brought about a significant revolution in the development of healthcare by providing remote monitoring capabilities and providing doctors with reports on patients in real-time, which leads to developing the care of patients with type 2 diabetes and enhancing their health condition. Through several sensors, IoT devices can collect patients' health data, such as glucose level, blood pressure, heart rate, and physical activity, so that healthcare workers can assess patients' health status and disease development within the body. These devices contribute to saving patients' lives by providing continuous monitoring of vital signs and disease management by physicians and healthcare workers. In this context, this article contributes to reviewing the development of IoT solutions in providing information and mechanisms adopted in monitoring patients with type 2 diabetes, data security issues, privacy concerns, and interoperability.

    The effect of human-computer interaction on new applications by exploring the use case of ChatGPT in healthcare services. In modern technology in healthcare and medical education: Blockchain, IoT, AR, and VR
    (IGI Global, 2024) Mijwil, Maad M.; Naji, Aseel Shakir; Doshi, Ruchi; Hiran, Kamal Kant; Bala, Indu; Ali, Guma
    Human-Computer interaction (HCI) is a domain that focuses on growing the interaction between humans and computer systems by designing and developing user interfaces that are efficient and delightful to use. In this chapter, the authors focus on the importance of deep human-computer interaction on new applications with an emphasis on using ChatGPT applications in the health services domain. This chapter provides full details on the importance of executing ChatGPT in various health-related scenarios while highlighting the importance of HCI to enhance user interactions in personalized medical advice in a ChatGPT application. This chapter concludes that the capabilities of ChatGPT and artificial intelligence applications can revolutionize the healthcare industry by enhancing the accessibility and effectiveness of new media communications between the user and applications while creating innovative resolutions to improve healthcare services.

    Assessment of how users perceive the usage of biometric technology applications
    (IntechOpen, 2022-07-27) Habibu, Taban; Luhanga, Edith; Sam, Anael
    Biometrics applications are progressively widespread as a means of authenticating end-users owing to the extensive range of benefits over traditional authentication (token-base-authentication). However, the transaction involves taking into account the perceptions and responses of end-users. If end-users are fearful, hesitant about these biometric technology-applications, misuse and implementation-complications can surely overshadow. The goal of this study is to sightsee the user’s-motivation, understanding, consciousness and acceptance towards utilization of biometric technology-applications. A 300-person survey was conducted to evaluate public-opinion on the use and adoption of biometrics. Stratified sample technique was used to administer the surveys. The results presented that perceived ease-of-use, user-motivation and attitude are more important-factors when deciding whether to accept new technology-applications. Although many end-users have become more familiar with biometric technology-applications (e.g., Fingerprints or facial-recognition), many individuals still have a negative-perception of the technology. Concerns regarding confidentiality and security i.e., storing and protecting personal-identification data, the fear of intruding into a person’s daily-life and disclosing personal-information remain a major problem. Some end-users claim that despite the potential resilience to biometrics, designers must mentally and psychologically prepare the general public for the new use of biometric technology. This will make it possible to transform negative user-perceptions into a positive-experience. Thus, this study can help end-users and companies understand and make the right decisions to promote the use of biometric-applications and services. The study is expected to be an important research-discovery that will greatly contribute to Uganda’s digital-economy.
