Behavioral Insights From Everyday Life
Rich and Contextualized Data in Real-time for Research and Clinical Trials
Experience Sampling — Ecological Momentary Assessment — Digital Phenotyping
One person might be happier than another in general, but not when she's at work. A group of customers might be more satisfied than another, except on Saturday evenings. MindSampler allows researchers to capture these crucial contextual factors to draw more robust inferences.
People often have difficulty estimating how much time they spend on different activities and can have pretty biased perceptions of their behaviors. MindSampler allows you to capture objective data from the phone sensors to develop a truly holistic view of individuals.
Try to remember precisely what you were doing, feeling, or thinking last Monday at 2 pm. Not easy, right! However, you can certainly report what you are doing, feeling, or thinking right now. MindSampler allows you to capture people's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors right as they are happening in everyday life.
