“Rewiring for Happiness: Computing for Kinder, Healthier, and Compassionate Life Experiences with Information Commutation Technologies (ICTs)”

This project is about re-thinking our current information sharing spaces and offering new ways of interacting with (or via) ICTs. We aim to create a paradigm shift towards positive computing which is rooted in empirical psychology and supported by NLP (Natural Language Processing) methodologies and UI (User Interface) design.
