Mobile Computing for Healthcare
Following his doctoral work at MIT, Jesus founded the Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing Healthcare Laboratory at CICESE in Ensenada, Mexico. His group collaborates with public and private Mexican hospitals to conduct fieldwork that aims to understand of current work practices and to design and evaluate appropriate mobile computing technology for complex healthcare scenarios. Much of his current work is on assisting elders with cognitive disabilities and on social networks for healthcare knowledge dissemination.
Using the CrowdSignals Data
Jesus will use the CrowdSignals data to support the development and refinement of activity and behavior recognition models that can support various mobile healthcare scenarios.
"This initiative to collect this large collection of data from mobile users could be really a threshold in research in ubiquitous computing, and particularly, in activity recognition, and behavior recognition, and in finding the ways in which these behaviors or these activities will impact our mood, impact out health, et cetera." - Jesus Favela, Professor, CICESE, Mexico
