Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton
Professor Vassilis Kostakos, Professor of Human Computer Interaction, School of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne
In this talk, Professor Kostakos will give an overview of his group’s research on smartphone instrumentation and discuss the challenges in conducting studies that are large-scale (thousands of participants) and longitudinal (lasting months) and where data is collected from participants using smartphones. He will describe the tools that they have built to passively, and intelligently, collect data from smartphones, and discuss how “context awareness” can enable us to collect the right data at the right moment. Their ongoing work on lab-based testing of smartphone apps, and our tools for conducting innovative Experience Sampling Methods/Ecological Momentary Assessment will also be presented.
