MD2K Receives $13.8M IARPA Contract
Posted on 2017-07-26
Under the direction of Prof. Santosh Kumar, the MD2K Center of Excellence has received a new $13.8M contract from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects
Activity (IARPA). The research in this project will involve developing models and
tools to use mobile sensors in monitoring and predicting work performance in real-world
workplaces. The sensors will be used by 600 employees from major pharmaceutical companies,
large consulting firms, high-tech companies, and high-tech startups in five cities
in the U.S. and New Zealand.
With this new project, MD2K's work is now able to cover monitoring of health, wellness, and work performance in daily life using mobile sensors. Given the close association of work life, work performance, and health and wellness, the research and resulting software will now have a significantly greater societal impact.
