  1. Group Visualization Feng Shan, Kristen Vaccaro & Kirstin Phelps CS 598KGK Fall 2013

  2. Audience In the not too distant future... • Established project teams looking for ways to maximize synergy & performance • Size: 3 - 7 individuals • Know each other well • Require creative problem solving and decision making to accomplish tasks

  3. Motivations • Considering just characteristics of effective teams may not be enough1 • Increasing interest in mind-body connection to productivity, group synergy, and stress (mindfulness2, flow3,emotional intelligence4, neuroscience) • Goal: Create a visualization that helps the group monitor biological cues that correlate with active participation and engagement

  4. Space Design Unobtrusive Screen for Visualization with Audio Component Source:http://pcon-catalog.com/koenig-neurath/meeting/lang/en/object/38052/controller/Catalog/action/detail/cHash/c8210184b91d699cd4f7e7c001f6bcaf/ Engagement Sensors in Chairs and Tabletop

  5. Features • Audio: ocean waves to signify initial calibration and cue re-calibration when out of sync above certain threshold • Physical Interface: chair sensors, table sensor that captures biorhythms (temperature, heart rate, brain waves) • Wearable Hardware: a la google glass to capture biorhythms (brain waves) • Wall visualization: shows group synergy in real time and cues for re-sync

  6. Wall Visualization Each individual calibrates to their own unique signature

  7. Wall Visualization As time passes, individuals’ unique pattern are viewed in comparison to their teammates; color saturation is based upon level of engagement relative to baseline

  8. Wall Visualization Darker = more engaged/participative relative to baseline) Lighter = less engaged/participative (relative to baseline) Time to resync? Cue audio fade in as patterns diverge to cue re-calibration

  9. Limitations & Considerations • Individual’s behaviors showing engagement may differ (hence importance of baseline, but not perfect) • Public/private: • Weirdness of capturing biorhythmic data - hope less creepy for established groups • People with health concerns may not wish to participate • Less surgery ward look, more abstraction of heartbeat or other rhythm (brain waves) • More data on mindfulness and synergy of group biorhythms for application
