Presentation Summary

Often physiological data comes in a table and users have trust the information as it is. This is still acceptable if data driven decisions do not immediately impact the user's health and safety, but I see a trend towards such important applications as wearable technology advances. PPG is a non-invasive measurement of heart activities used in intensive care unit patient monitoring and is also widespread in wearable devices. I propose and study a regression framework to leverage user's heart activity phenomenon to reassure dataset. Experimental data were collected via Empatica's E4 wristbands. Data convergence was observed and potential application areas in vitals monitoring explored in clinical and construction settings.
