In everyday life, we often recognize patterns from ad-hoc sensors and make intuitive decisions. This process is known as ambient diagnostics. This textbook is written for emerging courses in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science that explore intelligent software diagnostics from affordable devices, such as sensors on mobile phones, microphones, cameras, and gyroscopes. The text inspires readers to design and develop tools tor personal health monitoring and diagnosis. It is a visionary attempt to enable pervasive monitoring of changing health status, multiple sensory fusion, and telemedicine right from one's pocket. This in turn will significantly reduce the cost of healthcare and improve quality of life.
