The recent technological progress of IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) is widely considered to be placing a long-lasting impact on the social life style and wellbeing of our society. In particular, the proliferation of today’s IoT device greatly lower the bar to collect various human-centric data, ranging from daily activity, surrounding environment and social activity for further physical, mental and ultimately heath monitoring and care. Along with the IoT trend, AI technology offers unprecedented power for data analytics, especially for massive and heterogeneous input. The marriage of the two trends naturally offers great opportunity and potential to solve this problem in a cross-domain and cross-country manner, especially considering the fact that the A3 countries not only share a lot of commonalities and being increasingly connected, but also have inherent differences in culture, industry and society.
