Project Description

The iEngage project leverages new technologies to help promoting healthier behaviours in children with regard to physical activity and nutrition. Its digital platform provides children with information, education and skills set to achieve their physical activity and nutrition goals. The platform also connects with the activity trackers to provide continuous feedback and summarise the daily activity on a dashboard.

The richness of data collected can help various stakeholders (1) create an unprecedented landscape of health knowledge and actual behaviours and (2) understand/monitor the impact of program and (3) provide further personalisation. Our IT research tackles the particular opportunities and challenges for human-centred data mining, such as the extraction of physical activity behaviours.
