Cognitive Health Condition Monitoring as a Part of Routine Biometric Authentication and Identification

As many people do not willingly receive regular medical examinations for the purpose of preventive care, a method is needed to support health monitoring in a convenient a non-intrusive manner.

The novel contribution is a system and method for Cognitive Health Condition Monitoring as a Part of Routine Biometric Authentication and Identification . This is a non-intrusive approach, which people are able to incorporate into a regular routine , that is used for authentication.

The system works by connecting a cognitive system to a biometric authentication and personalization system. The cognitive system matches the user's biometric information (e.g., iris-scan, electrocardiogram (EKG), facial features, etc.) to previously stored data.

For example, an iris scan can be useful for checking for certain eye problems such as development of cataracts. Dental feature recognition can be used for detection of dental health problems such as bite alignment. An EKG can be used with Biometric authentication to monitor cardiac health. The system learns from the user's current health condition as well as family history and other risk profiles . It informs the user or someone designated by the user whenever it detects some form of anomalies .

To implement the system, a user performs one or more of these biometric authentications many times each day. The data can be stored over time...
