Daniel Messinger, Lynn Perry, et al. contributed to the book series “Advances in Child Development Behavior,” Volume 62 “New Methods and Approaches for Studying Child Development,” Chapter 7 “Computational Approaches to Understanding Interaction and Development,” which focuses on vocal interaction and development in children.
Simulating COVID19 Transmission From Observed Movement: An Agent-Based Model of Classroom Dispersion
A team of University of Miami researchers has put together an extensive study simulating the spread of COVID-19 based on observed movement using RIFD systems and modeled on classroom dispersion.
Data science is one of the fastest-growing fields because of its ability to address analytic needs. However, the supply of data scientists has remained limited. Academic institutions must adapt to meet demand through programs to train future data scientists. Read more “IEEE Computer Journal: Challenges and Issues in Data Science Education”
Children with hearing loss often attend inclusive preschool classrooms aimed at improving their spoken language skills. Although preschool classrooms are fertile environments for vocal interaction with peers, little is known about the dyadic processes that influence children’s speech to one another and foster their language abilities and how these processes may vary in children with hearing loss. A team of researchers from the University of Miami used new objective measurement approaches to identify and quantify children’s vocalizations during social contact, as determined by children’s proximity and mutual orientation.

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine researchers have announced a research project designed to create an individual’s “digital twin” using health and environmental data collected from in-home and on-body sensors. Once created, health care practitioners could apply artificial intelligence (AI) to an individual’s digital twin to virtually test and evaluate various treatment options and potential outcomes before applying them in the physical world.
