BioSENSE
a socio-physiological computing initiative at UC Berkeley

Biosensing technologies are finding their way beyond wristbands and eyeglasses, into clothing, furniture, and ingestibles. They offer opportunities for advances in our emotional and social wellbeing, but the sensitivity of data also raises important stewardship challenges. The group at UC Berkeley brings together a multi-disciplinary team to work on the future of biosensing and biosignaling.
