Positive computing applications - human-computer interaction to change the world
Develop software applications that help people live healthier, happier, empowering lives.
21st century ambitions should rest, not only in seeking the most usable, effective and satisfying user experiences, but also in seeking to design an experience that contributes to human potential by supporting wellbeing. This notion can be framed within a new domain called “Positive Computing. Positive Computing, a term taken from 'positive psychology', could be described as the study and development of technologies that are designed to support wellbeing and human potential.
There are many applications to be developed, for the web or for mobile phones. They aim to help people develop focus, engagement, empathy and more.
We seek students with excellent technical skills and with a strong interest in psychology.
