mPerf adds a new dimension to the way
we monitor and improve our job performance

Current workforce evaluation tools, such as interviews, cognitive assessments and questionnaires, can be helpful in assessing job performance, but do not always capture how an individual will perform in the actual workplace. In addition, these traditional tools can be limited by administrative delays and other measurement issues. Mobile sensors are already used to improve our health and wellness. Can they also be used to monitor and improve our job performance?

Bringing together the best minds

The mPerf team will include some of the nation's leading researchers in work performance, interpersonal communications, stress, sensordesign and signal processing, mobile sensing, mobile computing, machine learning, computational modeling and mobile health.

Key Innovations of the mPerf Project

A prediction approach based on semantically meaningful, theoretically motivated, technically feasible intermediate markers ensures generalizability and interpretability.

Expected Impacts of the mPerf Project

Theoretically-grounded models and efficient software implementations will enable objective assessment of everyday job performance for employers worldwide.
