"There has been an increase in interest regarding AI in the medical field and how it is closely related to IoT. IoT is “the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment” (Hoy, 2015).

IoT is usually composed of devices with embedded sensors, gateway, cloud, analytics and a user interface (Lo, 2019). .... the data collected from patients in real time is the digital biomarker, a biomarker that can be measured using digital devices and be used to explain or predict health-related outcomes (Wang, 2016). This includes all human data that can be measured via a digital tool."
