Description:Within this talk, we will highlight the great promise afforded by combining Systems Science techniques and rich data sources, particularly emphasizing the role of cross-linking simulation models with fine-grained temporal and spatial data collected by smartphone-based and other sensors, and other increasingly rich databases. Decision-oriented models grounded by such novel data sources can allow for articulated theory building regarding difficult-to-observe aspects of human behavior. Such models can also aid in informing evaluation of and judicious selection between sophisticated interventions to lessen the health burden of a wide variety of health conditions.
