Brown Bag Seminar Banner

The Games Institute presents the second of a series of "Brown Bag Seminars" on November 27, 2014

Title: Games for Health

Abstract: Chrysanne Di Marco taught the Games for Health grad course she taught this past summer term. There will be demos of some of the projects shown in the presentation. Many of the students who took the course, and are still on-campus will be attending the seminar and will provide follow up with discussions about their project.

CS798: Games for Health - It is a graduate reading seminar and game design course that reviewed the current major applications of games in healthcare. The course project involved the design (but not necessarily implementation) of a health-related game. 

Presenter: Chrysanne Di Marco has been a member of the Artificial Intelligence Group since 1990. She is also project leader of the HealthDoc project, which works to develop natural language generation systems for producing multimedia health information tailored to medical conditions and patient characteristics. Her current research includes: a project to formalize an ontology of rhetorical figures for use in computational natural language applications, an automated text-messaging system to promote breast feeding in new mothers, and an automated personalized Virtual Sleep Coach.
