"Truly Continuous Mobile Sensing for Behaviour Modelling"

(Vortrag im Rahmen der "MPI Distinguished Lecture Series" in Kooperation mit dem Fachbereich Informatik)

In this talk I will introduce first my general research interests which span from mobility modelling and geo-social network analysis to mobile sensing and mobile systems. I will then describe our work in the area of understanding patterns of mobility through sensing using microphone, accelerometer and gyroscope, primarily. I will then describe techniques which help make this energy efficient to achieve continuous sensing on smartphones and wearables. Examples will be drawn from our studies in mental health monitoring, vehicular mobility monitoring and organization analytics.
