Talk: Positive Computing

Digital technologies have made their way into all aspects of our lives that, according to psychology, influence our wellbeing -- everything from social relationships and curiosity to engagement and learning. By bringing together research and methodologies well-established in psychology, education, neuroscience and human-computer interaction, we can begin to cultivate a new field dedicated to the design and development of technology that supports wellbeing and human potential. In this talk, Professor Calvo will present an introduction to Human-Computer interaction work aiming to support psychological well-being.
