Description

Pervasive Analytics for Lifestyle and Urban Sensing

Over the last 5 years, I have been working to build and deploy context-aware mobile applications, based on sensor data from personal mobile & wearable devices. In this talk, I will detail two key themes of my research. First, I will describe work on wearable analytics that uses sensor data from personal wearable devices (e.g., smartwatches) to capture fine-grained insights on daily lifestyle activities, such as eating. The resulting fine-grained insights enable several novel wellness-related applications. Next, I shall describe behavioral insights driven by real-world deployments of context-aware mobile crowdsourcing, both on campus and across the city, where a large pool of participatory individuals perform a variety of location-specific tasks. This work provides insights on how to effectively engage individuals for community-driven applications.

About the speaker

Archan Misra is a Professor, and the Associate Dean of Research, in the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University (SMU). His current research interests lie in systems-oriented research in the areas of wearable & IoT sensing, real-time socio-physical analytics and trajectory-aware mobile crowdsourcing technologies. He is also a Director of the LiveLabs research center, as well as the Director of the recently established Center for Applied Smart-Nation Analytics (CASA). Over a 20-year research career spanning both academics and industry (at IBM Research and Bellcore), Archan has worked extensively on problems spanning wireless networking, mobile & pervasive computing and urban sensing. Archan holds a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland at College Park, and chaired the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC) from 2005-2007
