Physiological measurements have typically been limited to expensive and cumbersome clinical research equipment, causing the relationship between how stress and rest affect performance to be poorly understood. To solve this gap, Neumitra develops wearable technologies with continuous monitoring of stress and rest during daily life demands. Our mobile software incorporates users physiology with their contextual data, including phone calls, locations, and events, to help mitigate the effects of stress on daily life. This approach offers novel opportunities to inform computing with personal biological needs. This proposal extends our technologies and those of third parties to apply personalized physiologic computations with self-learning software to enhance continuous performance and productivity. The Empathic Operating System fosters a symbiosis between biology and technology throughout daily life demands. The interactive relationship between physiological data and software that we develop will empower cognitive performance based on real-time human needs. This empathic software will respond to how you feel with insights and recommendations to help us all perform at our best when we are most limited. By developing this approach for third party devices, we willfoster a wide variety of integration capabilities in a mobile applications library to foment radically new approaches in personal physiologic computing.
