Mindful Tech - QS2011

2,020 views

Published on

Many health technologies are reactive in nature: they prescribe behavior change. But there is another class of technologies that focus on engagement with one’s mental and emotional state. An inspiration for this area comes from the field of Mindfulness: paying attention with an open, non-judgmental attitude. The goal of this breakout session is to share our experience with self-tracking systems related to mindful technologies, explore a vocabulary more adequate this kind of self-tracking, and identify new problems and opportunities for designing these systems.
