Capstone Projects Presentation

 

 
With Dr. Nuno Jardim Nunes (M-ITI), Dr. António Lucas (representing the Secretariat of Education), Dr. José Manuel Baptista (UMa's Vice-Rector) and MET/MHCI Students.
 
We have reached the end of a creative and very productive semester.
 
To celebrate this, Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) kindly invites you to participate in the Capstone Project Presentations on December 18th.
 
The Capstone Projects are part of the Masters in Entertainment Technology (MET) and the Masters in Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI) programs. These presentations are the result of months of work in collaboration with local companies. Students were given a problem and they will now be presenting the solution. 
 
This is an important event as it will allow students to present their work as well as give you an opportunity to learn about what M-ITI does best.
 
After the presentations you are invited to toast our new graduates with a Madeira d’Honra.

Abstract:
Rapidly recognising and responding to contagious outbreaks and emerging diseases are public health priorities and might be facilitated by monitoring status updates in social media. Existing systems have emphasised natural language processing or public accessibility to analytics, but they have neglected a modular and interoperable design that integrates high-resolution geo-location, with real-time data. As a remedy, we have built an open-source project and we have been operating an open system that detects flu-related symptoms and shares the data in real-time with anyone who wants to built upon this service.
