Bayesian Metrology Project PDF Print E-mail

 

During the past decade with increased computing power and new research developments, Bayesian statistical methods have become practical in diverse areas of statistical applications. Bayesian methods provide a unified framework for optimally combining information from multiple sources, resulting in simpler and improved statistical analyses. Despite the widespread growth in Bayesian methods, for the most the field of metrology has not taken advantage of these methods. Both NIST researchers and their customers have much to gain from these methods.

Automatic Stress Recognition in Real-Life Settings PDF Print E-mail

Technologies to automatically recognize stress, are extremely important to prevent chronic psychological stress and the pathophysiological risks associated to it. The introduction of comfortable and wearable biosensors has created new opportunities to measure stress in real-life environments, but there is often great variability in how people experience stress and how they express it physiologically. This project modifies the loss function of Support Vector Machines to encode a person's tendency to feel more or less stressed, and give more importance to the training samples of the most similar subjects. These changes are validated in a case study where skin conductance was monitored in nine call center employees during one week of their regular work. Employees working in this type of settings usually handle high volumes of calls every day, and they frequently interact with angry and frustrated customers that lead to high stress levels.
