Abstract

In this talk I will describe novel systems that allow users to reflect upon their moods and learn positive coping strategies for dealing with stress and depression. I will also describe systems and applications that perform mood detection in real time using mobile and wearable 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 is. 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 with privacy issues. A few examples of applications in these new areas will be presented.
