Title of Seminar:  Overview of Expedition in Computational Behavioral Science

In this talk I will  provide an overview of a large multi-institution research effort, recently-funded by the National Science Foundation and led by Georgia Tech, that aims to develop technology for capturing, measuring, and understanding human behavior, based on multi-modal data captured from video, audio, and wearable sensors. The context for our work is the study of autism, a developmental condition which is characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication. The diagnosis and treatment of autism is based on behavioral observations and interventions, which are performed by highly-trained specialists. Our thesis is that computational models and methods can accelerate the acquisition and modeling of behavioral data and provide new forms of decision support for therapy. I will describe the challenges, computational and otherwise, that we face in this endeavor and give several examples of the sensing technologies that form the basis for our research.
