A platform for user empowerment through Self Ecological Momentary Assessment / Intervention

Abstract

This paper presents a software platform for semi-automatic life-style self-monitoring, analysis and intervention. Our approach focuses on user empowerment, engaging them into improving their own well-being. We provide a set of software tools which allow users to: (1) collect data from their daily lives, based on Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) techniques; (2) carry out interventions in their daily habits, with time/location aware notifications based on Ecological Momentary Intervention (EMI) techniques and (3) obtain insights –which help them in the task of defining those interventions¬ using visual analytics techniques. The contribution of this work is the EMA/EMI techniques being used by the user itself, opposed to conventional researcher-centered approaches.
