Mobility-Based Models For Advancing Diagnostic/Predictive Healthcare, Elham Rastegari Mar 2019

Mobility-Based Models For Advancing Diagnostic/Predictive Healthcare, Elham Rastegari

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Functional ability has been always considered as one of the important determining factors of individuals’ health and quality of life. Traditional movement analysis systems require expensive facilities and frequent visits for patients to specialized laboratories. Portability and affordability of wearable sensors along with their improved accuracy and capability of monitoring movement during daily activities make them a potential alternative for analyzing mobility patterns for clinical and health assessment purposes. Wearable-based movement data, when combined with other relevant clinical or laboratory data, could enhance evidence-based healthcare and data-driven Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS). Utilizing the data from wearable devices, many researchers ...


Julia Language Ephemeris And Physical Constants Reader For Solar System Bodies, Julia Mihaylov, Renee Spear Oct 2018

Julia Language Ephemeris And Physical Constants Reader For Solar System Bodies, Julia Mihaylov, Renee Spear

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

This presentation was the forerunner a second paper by the authors for the AAS/AIAA conference in January 2019, and is not available for download. For a description of the first presentation, see the authors' Discovery Day 2018 - Presentation.

Publicly released in 2012, the Julia language is a relatively new, open source dynamic language. One major benefit of Julia is its combined capabilities of both dynamic and static coding languages. It nearly matches the computational efficiency of static languages, such as FORTRAN or C, and exceeds that of dynamic languages, such as MATLAB or Python. Additionally, unlike Python, Julia was ...


Developing High Performance Grid Computing Systems On A Budget, Forrest Mobley Oct 2018

Developing High Performance Grid Computing Systems On A Budget, Forrest Mobley

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

High performance grid computing systems are essential for today’s engineering and research projects, as they make certain impossibilities possible, and save time and money as well. However, these supercomputers can cost upwards of a hundred million dollars and require large amounts of space and energy to keep, making them all but inaccessible to small engineering firms and universities. As most of these institutions do not require the massive level of computing power offered by these large grid computers, small scale versions are often built, with various setups. The purpose of this project was to set up a new small ...


Project Janus, Theodore J. Lilyeblade, Jacqueline Worley, Garrison Bybee Oct 2018

Project Janus, Theodore J. Lilyeblade, Jacqueline Worley, Garrison Bybee

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

The development goal of Project Janus is to design, fabricate, and program two robotic heads that can serve as animatronic chatbots. Each robotic head will be equipped with two USB webcams, a mono speaker within the robot’s mouth, and a pair of microphones. Additionally, each robotic head will feature a three degree of freedom neck, a one degree-of-freedom jaw, and a two degree-of-freedom gimbal for the eyes upon which the cameras will be mounted. The robotic heads will be interfaced to separate internet connected personal computers. Through these computers, they will make use of online speech recognition tools, online ...


Solar And Rain Catching Canopy. Urban Oasis, Afolabi Ibitoye, Langston Clark, Elena Zimareva, Evan Banks, Alexander Aptekar May 2018

Solar And Rain Catching Canopy. Urban Oasis, Afolabi Ibitoye, Langston Clark, Elena Zimareva, Evan Banks, Alexander Aptekar

Publications and Research

The Urban Oasis is designed to work within existing “pocket parks” in New York City as a combined rainwater collector, personal electronics charging station and resting designation for New Yorkers. Intended to not only lessen the demand on the city power grid by using renewable energy to charge devices, the urban oasis is also intended to mitigate grey water overfill in New York’s combined sewer system and, in general, serve as a model for responsible environmental stewardship in urban areas.

The important technical aspects of the canopy specifically analyzed were:

a) how much rainwater could the canopy be expected ...


A Hierarchical Learning Model For Extracting Public Health Data From Social Media, Elham Rastegari Mar 2017

A Hierarchical Learning Model For Extracting Public Health Data From Social Media, Elham Rastegari

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

In decision making processes, particularly when it comes to health-related decisions, each relevant piece of information is important. This is particularly important when it comes to health conditions for which there remains a high degree of non-determinism as far as diagnosis and treatment. Online social media, are places in which people feel free to share their opinions about numerous topics, including public health issues and how individuals have responded to different types of treatments associated with diseases. social media could represent a secondary source that can be used as a supplement to other data sources. This would allow individuals as ...


Toward A User-Centered I2-Enabled Collaborative Learning And Teaching Environment: The Cal Poly Scandinavian Style Participatory Design Project, Helen Y. Chu, Franz Kurfess, David Gillette, Craig Schultz, Mary Somerville, Marita Holst, Peter Lundkvist, Anita Mirijamdotter, Robert Sundlof, Seppo Tanskanen, Markus Tiburzi Sep 2005

Toward A User-Centered I2-Enabled Collaborative Learning And Teaching Environment: The Cal Poly Scandinavian Style Participatory Design Project, Helen Y. Chu, Franz Kurfess, David Gillette, Craig Schultz, Mary Somerville, Marita Holst, Peter Lundkvist, Anita Mirijamdotter, Robert Sundlof, Seppo Tanskanen, Markus Tiburzi

Helen Y. Chu

Information Technology Services and the University Library partnered to build an Internet2-enabled Learning Commons (LC) at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. The project team now extends the campus partnership model to include student and faculty users in collaboratively applying Scandinavian style co-design methodologies for physical and virtual learning and teaching environments. The interactive design approach was tested from January to June 2005 with funding from a U.S. Office of Naval Research Internet2 MiniGrant subcontract award. The project evaluated the efficacy of an interactive design/redesign methodology for encouraging user-driven, boundary-crossing information exchange and knowledge creation. Involving ...
