Aura implemented a pilot program in which high school students at select public schools were given tablet pens that monitored and analyzed their biometric data. The schools grouped students by patterns found through this analysis. Some parents disliked the analysis and grouping of their children, concerned with the ethical issues. Alternatively, some saw this process as beneficial because of the useful information it provided.
The goal of this project is to create a library with stories of people's lives in a digital format. An AI would gather data about the person, and the person themselves would also add to their memorial, making a curated memorial of data of the person's. The people wanting to view another person's data would have a face scan and would be able to access relevant public profiles (friends, family, celebrities), and would be given an RFID chip to activate the leap motion screen with the chosen data.
This project will be a video that demonstrates a garbage can that can help a person to forget someone by removing all digital traces of them be it on Facebook, old photos, old messages, and even the most obscure traces like Pokemon GO.
My project is designed to question and challenge the accuracy of memory. I designed a light display with lights that light up in a specific order and then ask someone to replicate the design to me, the experimenter, in order like in Simon Says. However, the point is to intentionally tell the person that the correct order is wrong hence the name of the project. I then see how much a person's memory can be influenced.
