Article Apparently faulty app in Iowa voting is a software developer’s worst nightmare “Until you deploy something in the actual situation, there’s always the possibility that no matter how the designers tested it, there could be something that they didn’t anticipate that creates a problem,” said Stephen S. Intille, a professor at Northeastern University who teaches about human-computer interactions. Article The Verge Collective Sweat Now that people are used to finding self-care at the tap of a touchscreen, the convenience of connected fitness machines have also made them more attractive over the past few years, says Stephen Intille, an associate professor at Northeastern University specializing in health technology. Article The Verge End of watch Stephen Intille, an associate professor at Northeastern University who studies health technology, has run studies on sensor systems that connect to mobile phones to track movement. One of the studies he’s co-authored is specifically about how people’s intention to exercise connects with whether they do, in fact, work out. Article Nature.com Mobile data: Made to measure Any effort to establish standards must address two critical questions. How accurate are the readings from these devices? And what exactly is being measured? Today’s fitness trackers are designed to tell users whether they have walked more this week than last week, say, not to collect laboratory-quality measurements. “What they know is general movements, which […] Article Boston Magazine Northeastern class asks students to invent new healthcare tools In a class offered at Northeastern University this fall, the required materials go far beyond textbooks: Students are tasked with using cutting-edge technologies such as Google Glass and smart watches to improve healthcare. The class, offered through Northeastern’s Personal Health Informatics program, is open to undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students from a variety of disciplines. Students are […] Article Campus Technology Exploring new frontiers with Google Glass The precedent for teaching students to build applications for wearable technology doesn’t exist. “There’s no textbook, ” said Rupal Patel, an associate professor in Northeastern University’s Department of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology. “Building [wearable] technology for health issues is a whole new area.” There isn’t even a reliable Google Glass manual. “The devices are […] Article Caregiving goes digital – and lets Boomers age in place “There’s a visceral reaction many people have to being monitored,” says Stephen Intille, associate professor at Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Sciences and a leading researcher in the field of personal health informatics. “We need to stay away from stigmatizing these innovations. The better way to think of them is like advanced answering […] Article Northeastern team puts patients first in health tech Matthew Goodwin, an assistant professor at Northeastern University, is trying to better understand their world by carefully tracking the boys’ movements and their environment. He has the boys wear sensors on their ankles and wrists that measure arousal levels, while cameras mounted on the walls record activities in the classroom, with the goal of finding […] Article Boston Globe: Northeastern team puts patients first in health tech Sometimes without warning, one of the autistic students in a classroom at the Center for Discovery will lose control. He will scream and cry. Throw things. Bang his head against the wall. The six adolescent boys in this Monticello, N.Y., classroom, some of the hardest-to-handle students in New York State, cannot explain what is upsetting […] Stephen Intille for Northeastern Global News Iowa caucus: Maybe there shouldn’t have been an app for that Iowa caucus: Maybe there shouldn’t have been an app for that The Iowa Democratic Party went wrong when it put its faith in an untested app to count the votes during Monday’s caucuses. Will there be a lasting effect on the race? Stephen Intille, associate professor computer sciences, and Nick Beauchamp, assistant professor of political science weigh in. Northeastern University professor combines computer science with health and measurement with self-reporting to improve accuracy of fitness tracking Northeastern University professor combines computer science with health and measurement with self-reporting to improve accuracy of fitness tracking Stephen Intille, associate professor of computer sciences and health sciences, wants to fill the void between Fitbit screens and real life. Looking ahead: Fitness tech in 2015 Looking ahead: Fitness tech in 2015 Fitness trackers accounted for more than half of the 35 million wearable devices in use at the end of 2014. Here, associate professor Stephen Intille, a personal health informatics expert at Northeastern, explains what we can expect from fitness tech in 2015. Your iPhone gets emotional Your iPhone gets emotional Virtual humans, relational robots, brain imaging devices, and mobile eye-tracking technologies were among the innovative research projects highlighted at a daylong conference at Northeastern that explored the intersection of emotion science and technology. Students raise a Google Glass to good health Students raise a Google Glass to good health More than 20 students in an innovative transdisciplinary course developed personal health applications for Google Glass, the wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display. ‘Popping in’ on the latest research ‘Popping in’ on the latest research From brain computer interfaces to gyroscopes, the next generation of healthcare technologies have something for everyone — and they’re being developed in Northeastern labs. Technology to improve health care Technology to improve health care Northeastern’s new doctoral program in personal health informatics — the first of its kind in the nation — will prepare students for researching and developing new technologies that can have a global impact on healthcare.
