CSAR webinar: Sounding out wearable and audio data for health diagnostics. – Professor Cecilia Mascolo, Professor of Mobile Systems, Department of Computer Science and Technology; Co-director for the Centre for Mobile, Wearable Systems and Augmented Intelligence, Cambridge University @ Location: Zoom. See CSAR emails for joining information.
May 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Considerable research has been conducted into mobile and wearable systems for human health monitoring.
This concentrates on either devising sensing and systems techniques to effectively and efficiently collect data about users, and patients or in studying mechanisms to analyse the data coming from these systems accurately. In both cases, these efforts raise important technical as well as ethical issues.
In this talk, I plan to reflect on the challenges and opportunities that mobile and wearable health systems are introducing for the community, the developers as well as the users. I will use examples from my group’s ongoing research on exploring machine learning and data analysis for health application in collaboration with epidemiologists and clinicians.
In particular I will discuss our project on using audio signals for disease diagnostics and our recent work in the context of COVID-19: a crowdsourced collected through mobile apps (covid-19-sounds.org) of respiratory sounds (coughs, breathing and voice) to pre-screen and diagnose COVID-19.

May 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The talk will describe the challenges in using ice templating and other technologies to create novel, complex and biomimetic 3D environments for the control of tissue growth adaptable to a wide range of medical applications.
