Research: Fatlab or Fitlab: Are computer scientists and engineers lazy?, Alastair Beresford

In March 2008 nineteen members of the Digital Technology Group in the Computer Laboratory took part in a one week study to measure the amount of energy they used during daily life. All participants wore an Actigraph and a Bat to record their movements. In this talk I will describe what the Actigraph and Bat datasets might be able to tell us about their lifestyles, and speculate on how applicable the results are to the lives of office workers more generally.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Digital Technology Group (DTG) Meetings series.
