The Collective Experience of Empathic Data Systems (CEEDS) project develops novel, integrated technologies to support human experience, analysis and understanding of very large datasets.
CEEDS will develop innovative tools to exploit theories showing that discovery is the identification of patterns in complex data sets by the implicit information processing capabilities of the human brain. Implicit human responses will be identified by the CEEDs system's analysis of its sensing systems, tuned to users bio-signals and non-verbal behaviours. By associating these implicit responses with different features of massive datasets, the CEEDs system will guide users discovery of patterns and meaning within the datasets.
SPECS is one of the core partners in CEEDS, leading the workpackage that develops the CEEDS engine, and the workpackage dedicated to application development. The scientific director (Paul F.M.J. Verschure) and the technical director (Pedro Omedas) of CEEDS are both members of SPECS.
