Advanced technologies and new scientific methods are rapidly integrated in health research. In the last decade, applied machine learning (ML) and sensor data analytics have been applied to the health domain, thanks to an abundance of available data and sensing techniques. ML enables automatic detection and/or highly accurate prediction of various infectious/ environmental diseases and mental/physical conditions. Hence, it may drive significant innovation in geospatial health research.
Owing to advances in sensor technologies, the physical and mental health status in real life can be captured and analyzed at a finer temporal and geographical resolution than ever before. Massive data is produced from wearable sensors including GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer sensors, heart beat sensors, and stress sensors as well as ambulatory/ momentary assessments. This trend opens new research opportunities to delve into many aspects of individuals’ health from geographical perspectives in an objective manner.
This session seeks for participants who are applying advanced ML and sensing techniques to geospatial health research. The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
1) Applied ML in the health domain;
2) Automated disease detection and diagnostics;
3) Sensor data-driven geospatial health research;
4) Health research based on ambulatory/momentary assessments;
5) Physical activities and physical/mental health;
6) Wearable/mobile sensor data processing and feature extraction (from GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer sensor data);
7) Spatiotemporal data analysis on sensor data and momentary assessments;
8) Visualization of wearable/mobile sensor data;
9) Interpretability of ML in health research.
To present your research in our session, please submit your abstract through the AAG website (http://www.aag.org/cs/annualmeeting/register) and send your PIN to Eun-Kyeong Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wei Luo (email@example.com).
