Health and Computation

INFO 6130

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with INFO 4130.

T. Choudhury.

The marriage of widely deployed sensing technology, machine learning techniques, and user interfaces will transform healthcare. Individuals’ will be able to continuously keep track of their health and well-being by using novel sensors and computational tools. Healthcare professionals will exploit wearable and home sensors to diagnose medical conditions and deliver better care at much lower costs. Novel interfaces will deliver just-in-time intervention in users’ natural environment and motivate positive behavior change throughout users lifespan. This course offers students an introduction to the computational, behavioral, and psychological concepts needed to develop the next generation of computing systems that can assess health and provide care. This project-based course will enable students to apply concepts learned towards original research.
