@nytimes on our Wearable Microphone Jammer (see it in action here: ). it uses ultrasound to disable surrounding microphones from recording you; lead by Heather Zheng & @ravenben with Yuxin Chen, Huiying Li, @tengshanyuan, Steven Nagels and I ->#chi2020 1/N
@nytimes @ravenben @tengshanyuan Here's how it works: sandlab.cs.uchicago.edu/jammer/ The engineering behind it allows us to get an awesome jamming coverage by making it #wearable : (1) any small movement decreases the impact of the typical blind spots that ultrasonic jammers have; and, (2) it jams in many directions!
@nytimes @ravenben @tengshanyuan What happens when you activate the jammer and talk to someone while surrounded by microphones? Those microphones capture noise rather than your voice, but you don't hear any jamming (it's ultrasonic). This means you speak freely but speech recognizers will fail to spy on you.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter
