Why companies want to mine the secrets in your voice

Why companies want to mine the secrets in your voice | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Voices are highly personal, hard to fake, and contain surprising information about our mental health and behaviors.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Emotions in the voice are down the road of the Emotional process. 

This begins through Central Nervous System and Autonomous Nervous System which triggers physiological reaction. These reactions are very instantaneous and closed to the triggering event, compared to Behavior Analysis through voice recognition or facial coding.

New wellness study shows just how sticky wearables can be, even among seniors

New wellness study shows just how sticky wearables can be, even among seniors | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
The interest in improving the sustained use of wearables goes beyond employer programs, according to the Annals of Internal Medicine study. It also applies to data collection for precision medicine initiatives to better target interventions.

Richard Platt's curator insight, October 2, 2017 12:53 AM

Quantifying the effectiveness of wearables to increase activity within the framework of a payer or employer wellness program has been the source of more than a few studies. Can financial incentives from these groups also steer participants to the desired outcome? Will participants be sufficiently engaged to use these wearables over a long period of time? What are some of the characteristics of the longer term users?   This area has been a topic of interest for Dr. Mitesh Patel, an assistant professor of Medicine and Health Care Management at University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and the Wharton School as well as director of Penn Medicine’s Nudge Unit.  But the interest in improving the sustained use of wearables goes beyond employer programs, according to the Annals of Internal Medicine study. It also applies to data collection for precision medicine initiatives to better target interventions.   In what Patel said is the largest study of its kind to evaluate the stickiness of wearables in a step counting program, 4.4 million Humana wellness program members were invited to take part. Of those, 55,000 actually downloaded the relevant app for the study, which was published in Annals of Internal Medicine.  Researchers analyzed data for a two-year period from 2014-2015 and tracked when participants first activated their activity tracker, how frequently the device was used in the first six months following activation, average daily step counts and sociodemographic characteristics, according to a news release from Penn.  In a phone interview Patel said he was struck that although 0.2 percent used the devices in year one, that rose to 1.2 percent in year two. In six months, 80 percent of the people who started using the device were still using it.

Garmin boosts Connect service with features that keep you motivated

Garmin boosts Connect service with features that keep you motivated | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

When it comes to software, Garmin Connect is one of the most comprehensive platforms out there. While the app and web dashboard might lack in intuitiveness, they certainly don’t lack in detail. With the latest update, Garmin has now thrown in a few more features.

The first is social sharing. Motivation is very important...

Olivier Janin's insight:

It is strange to me how major brands, like Garmin, Apple and Google, are communicating around there Data Visualisation and Social Sharing features as if they were new.  

Historical innovators, like Jawbone, Nike Fuel, Runkeeper, Runtastic, already released such features with a strong UX/UI designs, and it was in 2010. 

It looks like Fitness and Health Data tracking services  are trying to convince the consumers with the same value proposals, trying to find the key arguments to generate a solid growth and a massive adoption.

It is time for Wearables to re-invent themselves.

After sagging sales numbers, Fitbit’s stock price plunges by over 33% | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Fitbit was punished this week on Wall Street by shaving off 33% of the stock value this week.  This was mainly due to investors disappointment with lagging sales.  Last year sales increased by 92% in the fourth quarter and expectations were released that sales were going to remain steady compared to last year which was not well received in the Stock Market.  Only on Wall Street, would maintaining 25% of the Fitness Tracker market and the same strong sales numbers as last year be bad news.
