IoTFriday: Digital Happiness and IoT


Today we are discussing Digital Happiness with Thijs Pepping. The three topics for this #IoTFriday are:
– The quantified self
– Generative design
– A philosophical note

Together with Thijs, I discuss the trend towards a focus on happiness and well-being. It began in the field of positive psychology, (happiness) economics, and now emerges in technology as the science of positive computing. My quantified self with respect to running is discussed and we see some cool examples of how AI can help us design a car even. Watch until the end to catch our ponderings on the Sesame Credit score to finish up this walkthrough of the research topic Digital Happiness.

Stay tuned for more #IoTFriday and let us know your topic!
