Timeful, a mobile app, promises to stop distraction in its tracks

Timeful, a mobile app, promises to stop distraction in its tracks | TOK TALK | Scoop.it
Timeful promises to combine behavioral science and machine learning to create a holistic calendar of your day—from meetings to flossing.

Ariely, whose first book Predictably Irrational highlighted how painfully incompetent we are at making optimal financial decisions (and poked holes in the theory of supply and demand), has been researching human fallibility for years. (No wonder the guy is a little despondent.) But there is reason for a small, newfound source of hope. Along with Stanford University computer science professor Yoav Shoham and Jacob Bank, a Stanford doctoral candidate, Ariely has co-founded a company that aims to help people make better use of their most precious resource—time.

The trio’s first product is an application called Timeful, a name that their Mountain View, Calif-based company shares. At first glance, the iOS app seems like a slightly souped-up calendar tool: it automatically synchronizes with existing calendars and has a familiar interface. But the app also instructs users to pick from a list of health- and happiness-minded tasks—running, flossing, calling Mom or Dad—in addition to the usual personal or work-related to-do list. It then incorporates all of that data, which can include sleep patterns and designated productive times of the day, to suggest time slots for everything. “Figuring out what to do with your time is a really complex computational problem,” Ariely says.

The Limits of Logic: Should we embrace the irrational? | TOK TALK | Scoop.it

Logicians don't rule the world or get the most done. Could it be that a consistent world view is neither desirable nor achievable? If we abandon the straightjacket of rationality might this lead to a more powerful and exciting future, or is it a heresy that leads to madness? 

Shahidha Bari asks Cambridge philosopher and author of Think Simon Blackburn, psychiatrist and author of The Master and His Emissary Iain McGilchrist, and radical journalist Beatrix Campbell whether we should embrace the irrational.
