Novel Big Data Technologies in Public Health

About this Research Topic

The public health industry has been significantly transformed by the advert and evolution of digital technologies. In the last decade, the landscape has drastically changed with smartphone technologies, wearables, the internet of things (IoT), and, even more so, with high-speed connectivity becoming ubiquitous. With them came new ways for utilizing large amount of data in order to create solutions for many use-case driven approaches in public health. These include public health advice, online intervention in telehealth, health data tracking, and computer assisted advice. With the world now focusing on many aspects of public health due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be increased focus on how big data and analytics can play a productive role, not just during the pandemic but in applications in the post COVID-19 era in areas such as mental health, post intensive-care and new service delivery of public health services.

This Research Topic is interested in recent research undertaken around big data in the broad context of public health. The aim is to curate recent advances in how big data is utilized to tackle specific use-cases in public health around the world.

• Novel applications of big data and analytics to reinvent solutions for current and new problems in public health
• Experience sharing, in terms of pitfalls of public health analytics that researchers/practitioners should consider when using big data
• Telehealth applications using AI/ML and big data
• Social media applications/solutions in public health
• Wearable and mobile solutions using AI/ML and big data
• Population/citizen participation solutions
• Big data epidemiological solutions
• Big data assistive technologies


Keywords: Telehealth, e-health, biostatistics, health education, prevention, promotion, safety, epidemiology, environmental, hygiene


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
