SmartState: A Protocol-Driven Human Interface

SmartState: A Protocol-Driven Human Interface

Since the inception of research studies on human participants, researchers often need to interact with participants on a set schedule to collect data parameters. Before the rise of automated methods, user-provided data collection consisted of surveys administered via telephone or email. These methods were time-consuming for the survey administrators, which…

ReConnect:

Cigarette smoking remains the number one cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the U.S.. developing novel, efficacious smoking cessation interventions that are accessible, scalable, and sustainable to smokers, especially among vulnerable populations (e.g., low SES), will make a significant public health impact. One of the most powerful, evidence-based behavioral…

RAM: Remote Alcohol Monitoring

RAM: Remote Alcohol Monitoring

  Contingency management is a highly efficacious treatment that can reduce drug and alcohol use. In contingency management treatments, tangible rewards (e.g., money, privileges, or prizes) are provided contingent upon verified abstinence from the target substance. Among adults with alcohol use disorder, delayed outcomes have relatively little control over behavior.…

Edge-enabled Distributed Network Measurement

Abstract: In the area of network monitoring and measurement a number of good tools are already available. However, most mature tools do not account for changes in network management brought about through Software Defined Networking (SDN). New tools developed to address the SDN paradigm often lack both observation scope and…

An Edge-Focused Model for Distributed Streaming Data Applications

Abstract: This paper presents techniques for the description and management of distributed streaming data applications. The proposed solution provides an abstract description language and operational graph model for supporting collections of autonomous components functioning as distributed systems. Using our approach, applications supporting millions of devices can be easily modeled using…
