Reception at 345pm in Atrium

Blind Ambition – an interdisciplinary research and outreach effort pioneering assistive solutions for people who are blind and visually impaired.
Dr. Mohammed Yeasin, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

This research focuses on understanding non-verbal communications that spawned a new avenue for developing affect enabled dyadic conversation(i.e., Expression+, Expression, EmoAssist, i-FEPS, i-MAPS). Designing an adaptive assistive technology solution requires an understanding of the user’s need as set by their disability and their ability to perform the system-aided tasks with minimal cognitive effort. We introduced the notion of assistive thinking – a seamless blend of participatory design, and design thinking to develop technology solutions. In addition, we introduced modeling cognitive ability-demand gaps and collaborative sense-making to design personalized systems.

Dr. Yeasin is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Memphis and a Data Scientist. He is the recipient of National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Grant, Senior Member of the IEEE and Associate Editor of two peer reviewed Journals (BMC Bioinformatics and PRML). He has practiced machine learning for 15 years in the field of Bioinformatics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Vision, Cognitive Engineering, Human Computer Interaction and Assistive Technology.
