Internet of Things enables the connections and integration of physical world and virtual world. A vast amount of interactive data between human and the real world being created by diverse sensing sources can be readily collected. Such growing interconnections powered with intelligent approaches open up a new world of broader possibilities and innovations with a deeper understanding of human behaviors. It enables a wide range of challenging but promising applications which have great potential on impacting people’s daily lives in many realms such as recommendation systems, Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), assistive living and Smart Cities, etc.
In this talk, I will introduce the research efforts from my team on understanding human behaviors based on our research experiences in order to take actions on the situations and improve decision-making process, present real-world application examples and discuss the future research directions.
