DGMD E-13 Introduction to Wearable Devices and Sensor Data
This practical course is for students who want to evolve from consumers of data to producers of data, and mine their data to innovate or create new experiences in our big data economy. Students assemble wearable devices using industry-standard sensors, collect a continuous flow of data about their bodies and environments, and learn how to analyze these data streams using machine learning and artificial intelligence. Students are encouraged to use wearable devices as building blocks to help disabled persons, develop educational games, monitor senior citizens or personal health, or create artistic experiences they can share. SensorTile Kits are provided. If students want to go beyond the course assignments they might need to purchase additional equipment (for example, STM32F401 Nucleo-64). They should contact the instructor to confirm compatibility.
