As a collaboration between computer scientists, psychologists, and statisticians, we are shedding new light on the psychosocial processes that affect health and happiness and exploring the potential for our unobtrusive well-being measures to supplement -- and in part replace -- expensive survey methods.
Ultimately, we hope that our insights and analyses will help individuals, organizations, and governments choose actions and policies that are not just in the best economic interest of the people or companies, but which truly improve their well-being.
We are based out of the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center and Stony Brook University's Human Language Analysis Lab. Our work has been made possible by the generous support of many organizations including the Templeton Religion Trust, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and others. .
