Let me hear your body talk: UH scientists mine biomedical data

hysiological monitoring of its human user's health, including measurements of blood flow, pulse and breathing rate to draw inferences about a variety of symptoms on a continuous basis. This aims to add a new dimension in human-computer interaction, aspiring to use the abundant computing resources at home and the office in combination with novel sensing, algorithmic and interface methods to enhance the user's experience, as well as create a new widespread preventive medicine paradigm for computers to one day monitor the actual health of their users during computer use.

Vilalta, whose research involves analyzing massive amounts of data with the goal of extracting meaningful and informative patterns, is co-director of the Data Mining and Machine Learning Group at UH. The group has applications in planetary science and particle physics, such as the automated analysis and characterization of Martian topography. He will be applying this expertise in the analysis of biomedical datasets stemming from multiple sensors.

The grant helps with the training of graduate and undergraduate students working in the labs by encouraging their participation, both as experimental subjects and as researchers. Data from test subjects will be collected by state-of-the-art sensing systems that already exist in the laboratories of the investigators or will be acquired with support from this grant and will include thermal cameras, 3-D geometry video cameras and multimodality brain activity scanners. This hybrid system will be capable of integrating MRI and CT scans, as well as live neurophysiological data collected at remote collaborating institutions.

"This grant will facilitate the development of breakthrough technology in the area of computational biomedicine," said John Bear, dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. "And once the system is in place, it will be available to the research community from both academia and industry."
