Abstract

Almost half of U.S. college students binge drink. Compared to traditional mediums, technology presents an opportunity to investigate automatic monitoring and passive analysis to provide in-the-moment intervention. This project’s objective was learning about the opinions of college aged students to specific technologies that can be used to monitor and control binge drinking. Focus groups and a survey highlighted the concerns of accuracy, ease of use, and relevance to the target audience as key features in a device for this purpose.
