The detection of emotions using smartphones/wearable sensors and personal informatics is becoming increasable popular. Dr Chelsea Dobbins’s research focuses on the area of lifelogging, i.e. how our lives can be logged through the use of wearable sensors and mobile devices.

In this context, she uses AI methods to:

  • Visualise unconscious emotional processes and increase self awareness to promote positive coping strategies to protect future health.
  • Detect emotions using physiological and neurological signals to make virtual and augmented reality interfaces adaptive and communicative of such emotional states.
