Computer science professor Morten Kyed has been appointed to the first Danish professorial chair in pervasive computing at Aarhus University. The post has been financed by Systematic Software Engineering with a DKK 4.5 million sum over the next five years. Pervasive computing – an area in which Denmark is aiming to develop leading edge competencies – is expected to become the biggest thing in IT since the PC, or even the Internet. These days, inexpensive wireless electronics are being developed which provide virtually unlimited opportunities for building advanced information technology into our living and working environments in all sorts of ways.

 

Pervasive healthcare will be a special focus area for Professor Kyed. One example under development in this new field of IT application is a hospital gown with built-in sensors and wireless communication designed to replace the mass of wires conventionally used to connect patients to certain kinds of hospital equipment. Systematic Software Engineering, which has many customers in the healthcare sector, will be closely cooperating with Professor Kyed. However, other companies and institutions will be involved; for example SCS Scandihealth has already  entered an agreement with the newly appointed professor.
