Dr. Anind Dey is an early pioneer in context-aware computing and authored one of the seminal papers in the field entitled Understanding and Using Context. We have provided a link to that paper in our transcript. In his research, Dr. Dey uses sensors in mobile technology to develop tools and techniques for understanding and modeling human behavior, primarily within the domains of health, automotive, sustainability and education. One of his projects, dwellSense, uses sensors to monitor daily activities of older people to detect physical or cognitive decline; using computer vision and other tools to detect behavior disorders such as autism; and automobile navigation systems that adapt to an individual’s preferences.
