Information Science faculty member, Tanzeem Choudhury was interviewed for an article in the MIT Technology Review about Apple's new M7 Motion-Sensing chip in the new iPhone 5S.

Previous motion-sensing components stopped working when the phone was asleep so that they didn't drain the battery. The new M7 chip operates separately from the main processor allowing the sensors to be active all the time. 

“I think the new M7 processor can be huge,” says Tanzeen Choudhury, an associate professor at Cornell University. “Apps using motion sensing can now work much more power-efficiently. The addition of other sensors in the future could enable richer tracking of not only physical activity states but also emotional ones.”

Dr. Choudhury's research interests are in Machine learning, mobile systems, activity recognition, mHealth and mobile health, so advances in technology such as this one are of particular interest to her and her research group.
