In the great digital era, we are witnessing many rapid scientific and technological developments in human-centred, seamless computing environments, interfaces, devices, and systems with applications ranging from business and communication to entertainment and learning. These developments are collectively best characterized as Active Media Technology (AMT), a new area of intelligent information technology and computer science that emphasizes the proactive, seamless roles of interfaces and systems as well as new media in all aspects of digital life. An AMT based system offers services to enable the rapid design, implementation and support of customized solutions.
Brain and Health Informatics (BHI) aims to develop and disseminate understandings of novel intelligent computing formalisms, techniques, and technologies in the special application contexts of brain and health/well-being related studies and services. It is devoted to interdisciplinary studies on BHI, covering computational, logical, cognitive, neuro-psyiological, biological, physical, ecological, and social perspectives of BHI.
