GVU Research Showcase Spring 2022

Featured Projects

We designed and implemented a novel smartwatch wristband, Spidey Sense, that can produce expressive and repeatable squeezing sensations and effectively explore the design space of squeezing patterns
Facebook recently unveiled a tool that assesses whether someone might be contemplating suicide or self injury ‚ these predictions are made using an individual's Facebook activity. As these new technologies and potentials emerge, questions also emerge about the methodologies these studies use as well as the ethical implications of such work.
The goal of this research is to investigate the role that intelligent agents might play in facilitating these interactions to ensure that patients are empowered to learn about and manage their health, that doctors are not overburdened, and that the communication and coordination between the two remains effective and efficient in the short and long term.
