Node, a new smartphone app developed by Medical Center research associate Solomon Abiola, would track the spread of Ebola and other infectious diseases and allow victims to receive the help they need more quickly. A National Science Foundation grant will allow the researchers to conduct a pilot study this summer in Lagos, Nigeria.
Speaking in public is the top fear for many people. Now, students and faculty from the Human-Computer Interaction Group have developed an intelligent user interface for “smart glasses” that gives real-time feedback to the speaker on volume modulation and speaking rate, and have made the tool freely available for downloading.
In a paper to be presented this week at the American Association for Artificial Intelligence conference in Austin, Texas, computer science professor Jiebo Luo and his colleagues describe a computer program that can analyze “selfie” videos recorded by a webcam as the person engages with social media.
