TEAM 2 - Visualising Emotions
Mental and emotional health for citizens in 2051 takes high priority for health
and wellness. The ability to measure and track almost everything from food
intake, burned calories to location is now culturally absorbed and an accepted
everyday technology.

It was inevitable that sensing technologies would become more sophisticated and
precise, and that data would eventually be collected about our human bodily
functions.

But there are still concerns:
How should this private information be visualised? Words and numbers cannot
represent emotional health. How can we benefit from the interpretation? Which
decisions should be given to technological systems concerning intimate knowledge
and emotions? How do we trust this information will be shared anonymously and
responsibly for collective social benefits rather than exploited for commercial
gain?

What tools do we need to invent to allow society to reflect and think about
individual emotional data?
