Our hearty MedTech-IQ
congratulations are offered to our friend Dr. Samir Chatterjee
, Professor, School of Information Systems and Technology,
Graduate University for earning an EAGER grant award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) ...
... EAGER grants are only awarded to projects considered high-risk/high-reward, and that have the potential to be transformative. The NSF grant recognizes Dr. Chatterjee's pioneering efforts in the emerging field of "Persuasive Technology"....
Persuasive Technologies" are combinations of hardware, software and
applications that can alter human behavior and attitudes without deception or coercion. This exploratory research will design and engineer a prototype system to capture circadian activity rhythms by fusing environmental and body-wearable sensors to generate meaningful feedback to persuade end-users to change health related behavior...
... Dr. Chatterjee will be assisted in this research by two collaborators: Dr. Kaushik Dutta (FIU,
evolutionary data mining) and MedTech-IQ member, Mr. Miles Moore (CEO, AWS Inc)
. Graduate student Alan Price along with a number of new students will also support the new research...
