Enabling Learning on Mobile and Wearables: Challenges and Opportunities
With the advent of powerful and inexpensive sensing technology the ability to study human behaviour and activity at large scale and for long periods has in theory become reality. As a consequence data scientists have started to produce mobile tools to increase disease monitoring.In this talk Cecilia will initially describe her research in the area of mobile systems and mobile data analytics. She will then illustrate the challenges and opportunities of this research with respect bringing the logic and learning on device and close to the user: this will include aspects related to processing and power challenges. Cecilia will close by talking about the applications of these approaches to a variety of disciplines including health and urban computing.
Cecilia Mascolo is a Full Professor of Mobile Systems in the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK, a Fellow of Jesus College Cambridge and a Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science in London. Prior joining Cambridge in 2008, she has been a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at University College London. She holds a PhD from the University of Bologna. Her research interests are in human mobility modelling, mobile and sensor systems and networking and spatio-temporal data analysis. She has published in a number of top tier conferences and journals in the area and her investigator experience spans projects funded by Research Councils and industry. She has received numerous best paper awards and in 2016 was listed in “10 Women in Networking /Communications You Should Know”. She has served as organizing and programme committee member of mobile, sensor systems, networking, data science conferences and workshops. She has delivered a number of keynote talks at conferences and workshops in the area of mobility, data science, pervasive computing and systems. She is associate editor in chief for IEEE Pervasive Computing and has/is sitting on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks and ACM Transactions on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies, IEEE Internet Computing.
