9th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare


2016 Wearable Computing

CmpE 585 Course, Monday 12:15 - 15:00, Room BM B5

The computers of the 21st Century will consist of “the most profound technologies … that disappear - they weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it” - Mark Weiser.

This lecture provides an introduction into wearable computing by combining relevant methods, tools and practical applications from research and industry.

Methods include wearable and ambient sensor data processing, basic statistical methods and relevant methods from machine learning and data mining.

Applications include activity recognition in daily life, human emotion detection, social signal processing, and the smartphone as a wearable computer.

There are no special requirements to attend this lecture since all needed background knowledge is provided within the courses.


Write your own research proposal and conduct a feasibility study!
