Project Description

The MIT Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces group designs seamless interfaces for human augmentation. Building upon research in wearable computing, machine learning, psychology, and neuroscience, the Fluid Interfaces group investigates how human-machine symbiosis can enhance our cognitive skills such as attention, motivation, memory, emotion regulation, behavior change, empathy and more. We are seeking motivational and highly independent UROP(s) who are interested in working on “Wearable Wisdom”, a novel wearable intelligent system that offers just-in-time advice and inspiration, based on wisdoms of the real historical figures and personal heroes.
