Happy Sunday, I hope.
Here in the US, however, the clocks spring forward this morning, so it’ll be an earlier start for those of us on this side of the pond.
Now, I’d like to invite you to participate in another of my experiments, although this one does come with a major health warning.
Please tread carefully, particularly if your mood may be fragile at the moment.
You see, I’ve been thinking long and hard about a way to give much more customised feedback to someone after they’ve rated their emotional health, and I’m specially interested in how this might work in audio form, rather than as words on a page.
I’ve therefore assembled a VERY early prototype of such a system, somewhat held together with rubber bands and sticky tape.
If you’re keen to try it out and – really importantly – can accept that it’s quite possible it could give you feedback that’s not correct, I’d love you to have a play with it.
One particular word of warning is that it’s highly sensitive at the moment, so it could – for example – tell you that you’re anxious even if you only have a terribly mild case of butterflies.
Or it might classify your mood as low when you simply haven’t had your coffee yet.
With these provisos, please feel free to play with the system. Maybe do it a first time with your real answers, then again with made-up (and perhaps more extreme) responses to get an idea of how different answers might generate different feedback.
And I’d truly encourage you to use the Comments section on the blog to share your thoughts. All feedback will be most gratefully received.
So, as long as you please take care, please click here to begin.
Thank you. My fingers are crossed.
