    The introduction of iPhones has revolutionized user experience and smartphones continue to experience accelerated growth in recent years. Currently, the number of smartphone users around the world has reached one billion. In 2012, smartphone unit sales exceeded those of PCs; similarly, tablet PC unit sales are expected to surpass those of PCs by 2015. As iPhones and Android phones quickly rose and Symbian phones or BlackBerries quickly fell in the fiercely competitive mobile device market, user interface and multimedia experience have become the subject of attention. For example, Samsung, the company currently with the largest market share in mobile phones and smartphones, upholds the philosophy of “designed for humans.”


    Cameras on mobile devices are comparable to eyes for the devices in that they provide visual and sensory information of the surrounding environment. They offer users a mesmerizing multimedia experience and are considered the most important sensor in mobile devices. The widespread of mobile devices and low-cost sensors with camera functions have made life-changing mobile health care possible. For example, electronic medical records enable users to know their latest health test report, long-term sensory records and users’ health information facilitate the provision of remote health care. In addition, big data can be analyzed using data mining technology to provide early health warning, all of which help users better manage their health.


    Therefore, the plan of the System Applications SIG is to improve user experience, design multimedia experiences for users, develop mobile medical services and encourage users to engage in health promotion activities, improve sensor technologies by combining fundamental sensors, engage in data mining and analyses, and enhance the speed and technologies involved with various algorithms. The Project aims to develop advanced and practical technologies to create a mutually beneficial situation for both the academia and the industry.
