Captioning Group Conversations on Smart Glasses for People Who Are Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing, Gabriel Britain
People who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing (DHH) tend to avoid group conversations with hearing people, as they find it difficult to follow along and participate. Smart glasses could help people who are DHH participate in group conversations in a discreet way. This research investigates how people who are DHH prefer to be shown captions in group contexts. The work presented today is part of the student’s Master’s Project requirements.
Facilitating Self-Management Practices in Type 2 Diabetes Patients, Jason Dong and Kaavya Singhal
This project is in conjunction with Emory Hospital and aims to examine self-management practices in low socioeconomic status Type 2 Diabetes patients. Ultimately, this project strives to design a mobile technological intervention to facilitate this process. The work presented today is a part of Jason and Kaavya’s Georgia Tech Master’s Project.
HerHeart, Aayahna Herbert and Tymirra Smith
The goal of the HerHeart project is to create a version of the Healthy Heart Score Tool that helps increase awareness of cardiac health for African American teens. The students are developing a mobile phone version of this tool that is engaging for teens and encourages them to take action to reduce their heart risk. The work presented today is part of the students’ HCI studio class project with their industry partner Georgia CTSA.
Netflix Master’s Project, Aditi Bhatnagar, Suyash Junnarkar, and Neha Khandavalli
Netflix viewers want to experience newly released shows and movies in an interactive social setting that will enable them to deeply engage with the entertainment content of their choice. This project explores avenues through which viewers can learn more about shows and movies in an interactive setting. The work presented today is part of the students’ Master’s Project, done with guidance from industry partners from Netflix.
SOFT -- Sea Otter Foraging Tech, Josh Terry
Can sensor-instrumented toys be used to monitor health and improve enrichment for sea otters at the Georgia Aquarium? This project looks at the design requirements of computer-driven otter enrichment devices and how we can help otter trainers derive meaningful health insights from the data pulled from such devices. The work presented today is part of the student’s Master’s Project.
