The ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) will showcase two papers by Veljko Pejovic and Mirco Musolesi from the University of Birmingham. In the main programme, the UBhave team members will present "InterruptMe: Designing Intelligent Prompting Mechanisms for Pervasive Applications", work that deals with inferring the best moments to deliver information to a mobile user. This work resulted in an open-source interruptibility library for Android that is an integral part of the UBhave framework: https://bitbucket.org/veljkop/intelligenttrigger. In the adjoining Mobile Systems for Computational Social Science workshop, a position paper "Anticipatory Mobile Computing for Behaviour Change Interventions" by the same authors investigates the potential of mobile computing and machine learning to predict users' behaviour and users' reactions to interventions.
"InterruptMe: Designing Intelligent Prompting Mechanisms for Pervasive Applications" is going to be presented on Wednesday Sept 17th 14:00 rm "Seattle 3", Motiff Seattle Hotel.
"Anticipatory Mobile Computing for Behaviour Change Interventions" is going to be presented on Saturday Sept 13th 13:45 at Motiff Seattle Hotel.
