People-Aware Computing Lab Presents BodyBeat

BodyBeat
BodyBeat

Information Science PhD student Tauhidur Rahman presented his work on the mobile sensor BodyBeat at MobiSys 2014 in June.  The sensor, developed with Tanzeem Choudhury's People-Aware Computing Lab, captures non-speech body sounds - eating, breathing, coughing, laughter, and the like.  These sounds can then be analyzed by an attached smartphone or other device with the goal of improving understanding of health and mood.  Rahman's research has also received coverage in New Scientist and MIT Technology Reivew.
