Computing for Anyone, at Anytime, Anywhere
We research, develop and validate novel computing technologies to improve health, productivity, and well-being of individuals.
Devoted to creating computing technologies that can be used anytime, anywhere, by anyone, we envision a world where everyone is able to design and conduct self-experiments to test their personal hypothesis, to gain a better understanding into the-self, and to maximize their potential.
This research track focuses on developing novel software sensors with consumer wearble hardware for measuring psychological and physiological states in free-living environments.
Subtrack 1-2: Wearable Brain Imaging
