Masters scholarship in using in-the-wild sensing and AI-intelligence to explore productivity and wellbeing in hybrid work settings

This is one of four scholarships offered to support the development of the use of digitisation to support safe and efficient workplaces.

Due to the increasing nature of flexible work and the recent requirements from COVID-19 restrictions, workplaces are becoming more hybrid. This project aims to investigate innovative ways of ‘in-the-wild sensing’ to connect the cyber-physical world. The successful candidate will incorporate pervasive sensing and AI-intelligence to develop applications for the exploration of individuals’ productivity and wellbeing in hybrid work settings.
