- Vital Responder - Monitoring Stress in First Responder Professionals

Vital Responder Image Vital Responder Image The goal of the CMU|Portugal Vital Responder research project is to explore the synergies between innovative wearable technologies, scattered sensor networks, intelligent building technology and precise localization services to provide secure, reliable and effective first-response systems in critical emergency scenarios. Based on these observations we are intrigued by the possibility of evaluating human stress in real-time under the aforementioned adverse conditions, by means of continuous online vital sign monitoring of first responders. Using Vital Jacket® technology, our research team will be responsible for the signal processing (What kind of useful physiological parameters and events can we successfully extract from the collected signals?) and human-computer interaction (How can we present this massive information in a way that is useful for the target users under real stress situations?) tasks.

- Assisted Annotation of Microscopy Imaging

CellNote Image Biology laboratories produce massive amounts of microscopy data, which typically takes days to manually process. Computer vision, along with other research fields such as Human-Computer Interaction, can pave the way for what is currently known as high-throughput microscopy imaging: full automation of the imaging capture and analysis process, significantly boosting Biology research.
