Past Event

Workshop: Semantic Activity Analytics

When: July 12-13, 2018

Where: University of Zurich, Andreasstrasse 15, 8050 Zurich

The first national workshop on “Semantic Activity Analytics” was hosted by the URPP “Dynamics of Healthy Aging” at the University of Zurich. Over thirty experts from across Switzerland and representing the disciplines of psychology, neuroscience, medicine, information science, engineering, privacy law, and ethics, convened in Zurich to discuss the implications of this emerging area of research for healthy aging. As scientists and practitioners rely ever more on (mobile) digital devices to collect large amounts of daily activity and health-related data, a major challenge has become how to best combine and interpret all of this information. Taken from this perspective, the goal of semantic activity analytics is to develop, test, validate, apply, and optimize algorithms for rapidly interpreting what patterns of data mean for the long-term maintenance of health and subjective well-being in the aging population.
