emotional intelligence, enhanced

At EiQ Technologies we are developing the world’s first low cost suite of wearable, machine learning, emotional insight tools built around the most scientifically reliable physiological indicator of emotional states: the human heart.

Our suite, which emphasizes affordability, portability and facilitating humane computer interactions (HCI), makes it easier and more reliable to gather and compare data about emotional states across space and time by facilitating:

– Remote & mobile collection of data

– Real-time & historical visualizations of emotional events

– Accurate insight into long term mental health patterns & triggers
