Equipped with cutting-edge sensing technology and high-end processors, smartphones can unobtrusively sense human behavior and deliver feedback and behavioral therapy. The authors discuss two applications for behavioral monitoring and change and present UBhave, the first holistic platform for large-scale digital behavior change intervention.
