Alex will be sharing some updates from one of his ongoing projects: MindfulPlate: A Ubiquitous System Leveraging Perception bias to Encourage Healthier Eating Habits.
Perception bias has been shown to effect the way in which people eat. Simple things such as plate and utensil size, shape of the plate, and plate color can influence how people eat. We have leveraged this illusion to develop persuasive technology in the form of a plate to influence users to serve smaller portions of food.
We're back in Gates 310 for the rest of the semester. Manndible will be providing our snacks.
