This Seminar is part of an interdisciplinary seminar series called "Pushing Mobile Interventions Forward", as part of A Distinguished Faculty and Graduate Seminar Series. Assistant Professor of Statistics Ambuj Tewari is hosting this series.

Abstract:  The people-aware computing group at Cornell has been developing techniques to cheaply, accurately, and continuously collect data on daily human behavior, social interactions, and context. This data is subsequently leveraged to provide targeted, personalized and effective feedback to promote better mental and physical health in individuals. In this talk I will give an overview of our work on turning sensor-enabled mobile phones into well-being monitors and instruments for administering real-time/real-place interventions.
