Health Wearables

DECISIVE ANALYTICS' Alison Smith-Renner Published in Communications of the ACM Magazine

Alison Smith-Renner, Senior UI/UX Engineer for DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation; along with her colleagues Bran Knowles, Forough Poursabzi-Sangdeh, Di Lu, and Halimat Alabi; recently had their article “Uncertainty in Current and Future Health Wearables” published in Communications of the ACM, the leading print and online publication for the computer and information technology fields. Mrs. Smith-Renner and her team raise areas of concern and call for further research to address uncertainty in health-wearable technology and the trade-offs they imply; specifically, how to provide access to confirmatory evidence of reliability, how to preserve provenance of uncertainties, and finally, how to tailor communication of those uncertainties.
