Prof. Sang-Won Bae on “Human-AI Systems for Health”
From Edmund Fogarty II
Presented on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 for the "SSE Dean’s Virtual Seminar Series: The Future of Systems" featuring Prof. Sang-Won Bae on “Human-AI Systems for Health: Detecting Marijuana Intoxication in the Natural Environment Using Smartphones, Wearables and Machine Learning.”
In this talk, Prof. Bae will discuss research on how passive sensing devices, such as smartphone-based sensors and wearable activity trackers (e.g., Fitbit), can be used to identify episodes of acute marijuana intoxication in the natural environment. She explores the implications for automated and continuous detection of marijuana to trigger the delivery of just-in-time interventions to prevent marijuana-related harm.
Dr. Bae is an assistant professor at the School of Systems and Enterprises. She completed her Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and Engineering at Yonsei University. She joined SSE from Carnegie Mellon University, where she was a systems scientist in human-computer interaction. Dr. Bae's research interests are focused on using passive data from smartphones and wearable devices to develop predictive models of human behavior that could reduce healthcare costs.
The "SSE Dean’s Virtual Seminar Series: The Future of Systems" is presented by Dean Yehia Massoud and offers weekly lectures each Wednesday at noon for Stevens undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administration and guests. At each session, SSE faculty present a 20-minute lecture, followed by a five-to-ten minute Q&A session.
The series has been created to keep students informed on the advances of faculty research, and the mission of the School of Systems and Enterprises as a leader in systems science and engineering. Each lecture will be recorded and made available on the School of Systems and Enterprises Kaltura channel for those who are unable to attend the live Zoom sessions.
