Albert Díaz-Guilera, researcher of the group DataScience@UB, is invited to give the summer School course at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of the Andes, Colombia: Trends in Analytics: Network Science.
Physical activity and poor diet are major risk factors for metabolic disorders and the main causes of premature mortality. Efforts and tools to track lifestyles, identify trends and risk profiles, and provide individuals with continuous personalised and expert feedback are hugely important. This project consists of the design, development and validation of an intelligent system for acquiring and recording individuals’ personalised information in order to encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle based on behavioural skills, nutrition patterns and adequate physical activity. Based on wireless camera technology and advanced artificial vision, this system will have the capacity to track and quantify the behaviour of individuals for long periods of their daily lives.
