Mobile Measurement of Behavior

This is a very interesting talk about the use of mobile devices for doing research in the field, to get insights in (stress) behavior of for example drugs users, smokers or alcoholics by dr. Santosh Kumar of the University of Memphis.

Dr. Santosh Kumar also gives his thoughts on what could happen in 2050 when it comes to mobile uses. For example, a personal lab in the pocket and personal/therapist assistant on the phone. The data from these devices can provide advice to the user.
