Heidelberg Laureate Forum: “New Ways of Thinking of the Mobile Phone for Healthcare”

Shwetak Patel, the Washington Research Foundation Entrepreneurship Endowed Professor in Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Washington, describes a collection of research projects conducted with his clinical collaborators that leverage the sensors on mobile devices (e.g., microphones, cameras, accelerometers, etc) in new ways to enable the screening, self-management and longitudinal study of diseases. These projects follow the theme of finding unique signals and biomarkers in order to enable access and scale by leveraging existing hardware. His remarks underscore the potential advances in health and clinical science through the convergence of sensing, machine learning, and human-computer interaction.
