Student project: Alcohol and eye movement
What you will do
Alcohol influences human physiology and behavior. Alcohol content is typically measured using a breath or blood analyzer. Imec is considering less obtrusive ways to monitor alcohol content. This project aims to monitor alcohol content based on eye movements.
Within this project, Imec Netherlands has collected a large data set in volunteers at Lowlands 2018. Eye movements have been measured during specific tasks and games. Does alcohol content correlate with eye movement? What is the effect of the environment or history of the volunteer?
This thesis research includes the following steps: literature study to obtain an overview of the state of the art, cleaning of data and signal processing, data analysis, feature extraction and the development of machine learning algorithms. Within the project the student will be analyzing physiological data as well as contextual information obtained through questionnaires. During the project the student will interact with different experts on the topic. Finally, the student is expected to give a presentation and write a report. Depending on the results a journal publication should be prepared.
