Mynatt Goes to Washington! | January 30, 2018

Led by moderate Dan Lopresti, Beth along with Henning Schulzrinne, Matt Wansley, and Nadya Bliss served on a panel representing computing researchers in academia and industry, making the case for intelligent infrastructure to congressmen, congressional staffers, and other stakeholders. They argued that while infrastructure needs are critical, it would be shortsighted to simply replicate more of what we have. Intelligent infrastructure is the deep embedding of sensing, computing, and communications capabilities into traditional urban and rural physical infrastructures such as roads, buildings, bridges, pipelines, water and electric distribution systems for the purpose of increasing efficiency, resiliency, and safety.

Mynatt to Give Informatics Colloquium Lecture at Indiana University Bloomington | November 25, 2017

Beth will give the Indiana University Informatics Colloquium Lecture next week, Bridging Ubiquitous Computing and Personal Health Informatics to Transform Healthcare. In the talk, she will discuss how healthcare for chronic disease is the dominant cost for many healthcare systems, now and for the foreseeable future. The unique capabilities of pervasive computing technologies have the potential to transform healthcare by shifting care from institutional to home settings, by helping individuals engage in their own care, by facilitating problem solving and decision making, and by creating a network of communication and collaboration channels that extends healthcare delivery to everyday settings.
