Recently, ambient patient monitoring using wearable and nearable sensors is becoming more prevalent, especially in the neurodegenerative (Mild Cognitive Impairment) and neuro-cognitive developmental disorder (Autism and Rett syndrome) populations. Wearables have the advantage of being able to collect high-resolution physiological signal data. However, they suffer from low compliance, and the neurologically impaired populations do not like to wear them or destroy them or forget to wear them. Nearables, on the other hand, do not live on the patient's body and, as a result, have high compliance. In this thesis proposal, we will look at innovative methods for wearable data processing and develop diagnostics using nearables. Finally, we will explore methods to fuse wearable and nearable sensor data to boost the diagnostic powers of the algorithms for classification and prediction of patient state.
