Campus Mood

Tracks:
  • Research: Apps that Enhance Self-Knowledge Via Data Quantified-Self Apps
Using data from Social Media (example Twitter) we can provide real-time sense of the mood on campus. We will analyze posts for using machine learning and open source tools such as the IBM Watson Tone Analyzer to figure out the emotion of the posts people are creating. We will also data mine to find campus mood of the campus in relationship to recent events. Contact me to join the Team!

Diversity in Faculty Hiring

Tracks:
  • Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
This app builds upon our research into the evolution of gender diversity in academic departments. We are building an app that helps university deans and department heads understand how their hiring decisions today will influence the level of gender diversity in their departments 5, 10, 20, or more years down the road. The hope is that these predictions will help departments meet diversity targets by giving them a sense of their progress towards those targets.

Health Stories

Tracks:
  • Research: Apps that Enhance Self-Knowledge Via Data Quantified-Self Apps
Health Stories is a project to improve the efficacy of preventative medical care by increasing awareness of health related issues, motivation for better lifestyle, and discussion surrounding health related topics. The inspiration for this app comes from the willingness of those who have undergone, or are in the process of undergoing medical treatment to share stories related to their experience. This app is a platform to collect and efficiently distribute those stories in many different forms, spreading health education in an engaging and relatable manner. Stories can be entered directly into the app or website where users can also comment on and discuss the stories in addition to sharing them on social media to increase exposure. We also hope to add additional data collection capabilities related to diet, schedule, lifestyle and integration with wearable sensors. We also hope to partner with content producing groups to further develop some of the more popular stories into videos that could reach a wider audience through social media. Various studies have shown that increasing health education has a wide range of benefits, from increased individual health initiative in addition to benefits to the community such as increased organ donor registration rates. Learning about the impact of medical conditions through stories from people that have experienced them firsthand will provide a more relatable and personal approach to health education that we hope will inspire greater interest.

Kurbbit - The Community Parking Network

Tracks:
  • Service: Apps for a More Livable LA
We are creating an improved sharing economy network, The Community Parking Network. Think of Kurbbit as the Airbnb of parking, with a twist. It is a mobile website and iOS platform that connects a two-sided network of hosts and guest for short, medium, and long-term parking in congested communities. Hosts can make extra cash by renting out their unused parking spaces, and Kurbbit charges a commission on every transaction. Kurbbit’s twist is what makes it unique. The platform encourages drivers to develop parking friendly communities by providing features to connect drivers leaving a destination with drivers arriving. Successful on-street spot swaps reward drivers leaving a destination with Kurbbit Community Points, which are interchangeable for various parking and commuter related benefits.

NICU Essentials

Tracks:
  • Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a fast-paced environment that is often stressful for learning pediatric trainees. As a result, educational objectives for the rotation are often sacrificed due to the dynamic flow of ICU patient care and is further exacerbated by constraints placed by resident duty hour and the transient nature of resident schedules. Recent surveys from pediatric residents NICU rotations indicate a desire for more consistent educational instruction that will seamlessly fit into their daily workflow. Asynchronous learning is a student centered instructional method where interactions between the teacher and learner are independent of time and place. This allows pediatrics residents greater flexibility to achieve their educational goals at their own pace. The ubiquity of mobile technology in the medical setting is a prime vehicle for delivery for educational curricula to the next generation of pediatric trainees. The goal of "NICU Essentials" will be to develop an education curriculum for pediatric trainee use during their NICU rotations that will be delivered via a mobile app. The app will provide trainees with pre-recorded video lectures, multiple choice questions and articles to augment their learning during their rotation through the NICU in addition to a variety of other educational tools.

SaRA - Surgery and Recovery Assistant

Tracks:
  • Research: Apps that Enhance Self-Knowledge Via Data Quantified-Self Apps
Mobile app designed to help patients improve their recovery from surgery. Also, includes Personal Health Information to create a recovery dashboard designed to give personalized suggestions to both improve recovery process and benefit patient after recovery. Turning what today is almost a purely paper process into a tech-enabled system that is patient-focused. Our team has dedicated over 2 quarters worth of work on market assessment, pricing, base infrastructure set-up and mock-ups that have shown nothing but promise and we are looking for a few more people to make this idea a reality.

STEAMed Carrots

Tracks:
  • Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
This app leverages LTL (Learning in two languages)-faculty developed lessons in teaching Math using CGI (cognitive guided instruction ) techniques. Our STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) faculty helped us build easy to use lessons in an iOS App for Pre-K through 6th grade students. It's fun, thought provoking, and takes you on a wonderful journey as you explore the philosophy of mathematics. Although teaching math in a diverse multi-language school doesn't require looking at the instruction differently this App will have a bilingual (trilingual?) component using language specific APIs. Now that the UCLA campus has a expanded to include not only pre-k through 6th (UCLA Lab School) but also 6th- 12th grades (Geffen Academy) finding ways to prepare students in STEAM as early as possible is key to their future success.

SuchFit

Tracks:
  • Research: Apps that Enhance Self-Knowledge Via Data Quantified-Self Apps
As technology is incorporated deeper into data acquisition on aspects of our daily life, Quantified Self becomes a more popular tool for people to enhance their self-knowledge. Our mobile app is designed to help people keep track of their daily life. By integrating the data from various sources including HealthKit or manually input, we are gonna creating a dashboard showing a splendid overview of the whole story of life. Base on the data collected and along with the location, season,etc, personalized suggestions on health, habit or diet could be provided to improve the life quality and health status. Our goal is to help people quantify themselves and see how their life become better.
