Distinguished Lecture Series: Emotion Tracking for Health, Memory and Well-being

In this talk, novel systems we designed that allow users to reflect upon their moods while doing daily events will be described. We are building systems and applications that perform mood detection in real time using mobile technology. We are exploring novel user interface applications to help users reflect upon and manage their affective experiences. Many questions remain from our work, in terms of how useful a system like this would be over the long term and how valuable a personalized, mobile, awareness system might be in real time. Finally, we feel that there is a huge opportunity in the remote familial space, or in a close social network, where knowing about the emotional health of separated loved ones or close friends comes in to play. These new research areas are also tightly coupled to privacy issues. A few examples of applications in some of these new areas will be presented.
