Recent advances in AI and sensor technology have enabled major breakthroughs in non-intrusive and cost-effective psychophysiological assessment in complex sociotechnical systems such as aviation, ground transportation, process control and health care. This seminar covers a range of converging projects that showcase the efficacy of deploying AI-enabled mobile health tools, wearable sensors, and interactive systems for continuous monitoring of mental health, occupational stress and fatigue, driver and pilot drowsiness, and chronic diseases as well as application of human factors engineering to provide just-in-time intervention for self-management or recovery.
