Topic:

Human-machine Interaction for Mental and Behavioral Health Care

Human-machine interaction (HMI) refers to the interaction between human users and an interactive machine, such as a robot, virtual reality, and smart mobile device. HMI technologies have been designed for physical health for decades. In recent years, the fast-evolving interactive technologies enable machines to understand and influence human users on a level that was never possible, opening the door to using HMI for mental and behavioral assessment and intervention. In this talk, Dr. Zheng will introduce her work on HMI for children with Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD) as examples to demonstrate the state-of-the-art research and future directions.

Biography:

Dr. Zhi Zheng received her B.S. (2008) in Biomedical Engineering and her M.S. (2011) in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems from Xidian University. Then she received her M.S. (2013) and Ph.D. (2016) in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University. She joined RIT in Aug. 2019 as an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Zheng's research emphasizes the integration of robotics, virtual reality, computer vision, machine learning, and psychology, with a focus on machine intelligence. The overarching goal of her research is to explore new paradigms of human-machine interaction (HMI) to help people in their daily life and design reliable assistive systems for mental health care.
