Thayer Distinguished Speaker Series

Thayer School's Visionaries in Technology series honors engineers and scientists whose insights have benefited humanity through revolutionary engineering solutions, paradigm shifting scientific advances, novel fields of inquiry, or policy shaping debate.

In 2014 Jennifer Healey, Research Scientist in Intel's Systems and Software Research Lab, spoke about "Machine-to-Machine Transportation Systems."

About the Speaker

Jennifer Healey Jennifer Healey is a Research Scientist at Intel Corporation in Santa Clara, California. Dr. Healey is part of the Systems and Software Research Lab. She received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from MIT in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2000. She is an expert in embedded sensor technologies and intelligent sensor fusion and has done extensive research on situation and context aware systems. In 2010, she founded a portfolio of research around transportation that includes research around M2M (machine-to-machine) Autonomous Driving and Driver State Monitoring. Dr. Healey's work on data driven semi/autonomous control has additionally interested her in how and why data gets used in smart systems, and how user’s privacy is protected in a world where our actions constantly logged by our interaction with smart things.
