E-Coaching for Health

March 2018

E-coaching is an emerging computing area in which intelligent systems are used to encourage progress toward specific health-related goals by providing tailored training and guidance. Progress in this field could well be a key enabler of increasing health span and well-being for our increasingly care-demanding society.



Architecting E-Coaching Systems: A First Step for Dealing with Their Intrinsic Design Complexity

March 2018

E-coaching systems are a highly valuable asset for promoting healthier lifestyles. However, the design of these systems is intrinsically complex. This article proposes a loosely coupled architecture to support the modeling of e-coaching solutions, reducing design complexity and enhancing the flexibility required for the e-coaching process.



Emotion and Motivation in Cognitive Assistive Technologies for Dementia

March 2018

The adoption and effectiveness of cognitive assistive technologies hinge on harnessing the dynamics of human emotion. The authors discuss seminal advances in the integration of emotions in assistive technologies for dementia and propose Bayesian Affect Control Theory (BayesACT), a quantitative social-psychological theory, to model behavior and emotion in such systems.

Recommender System Lets Coaches Identify and Help Athletes Who Begin Losing Motivation

March 2018

This article presents a novel approach to monitoring athletes' behavioral changes to predict a decline in motivation. When the system detects such a decline, it refers the athlete to her coach, along with a concise explanation of the detected behavioral changes. The coach thus has all the information needed for a prompt, targeted intervention.



Monitoring Eating Behaviors for a Nutritionist E-Assistant Using Crowdsourcing

March 2018

The authors describe Lucy, a digital assistant that monitors eating behaviors to help users lose weight. Lucy's design was informed by a study of clients in a nutrition clinic, as well as by crowdsourcing to evaluate six approaches to assessing nutritional content or caloric intake based on meal photos.



Programming Spiking Neural Networks on Intel’s Loihi

March 2018

Loihi is Intel's novel, manycore neuromorphic processor and is the first of its kind to feature a microcode-programmable learning engine that enables on-chip training of spiking neural networks (SNNs). The authors present the Loihi toolchain, which consists of an intuitive Python-based API for specifying SNNs, a compiler and runtime for building and executing SNNs on Loihi, and several target platforms (Loihi silicon, FPGA, and functional simulator). To showcase the toolchain, the authors describe how to build, train, and use a SNN to classify handwritten digits from the MNIST database.



The Maker Revolution

March 2018

The maker revolution, in which 3D printers and other innovative technologies let us produce many types of prototypes and products quickly and easily, is profoundly affecting research and industry.



Trolling Pathologies

March 2018

The netizen watch phrase is: don't feed the trolls. A better guide would be: learn to recognize the trolls.



The Cyber-Physical Systems Revolution

March 2018

Cyber-physical systems constitute a disruptive technology across many industries, with a strong impact on economies and social processes. Their applications in many domains, from manufacturing to agriculture and from critical infrastructure to assistive living, brings challenges in technology, business, law and ethics.
