“Amplify the Sense of Wonder”
This project focuses on amplifying our mind, improving our skills, and helping us reach our long-term goals. We combine findings in cognitive science, psychology, and social sciences with technology (e.g. wearable sensors) to learn more about human behavior. Geist (pronunciation: [ˈɡaɪst]) is a German word. Depending on context it can be translated as the English words mind, spirit, or ghost. It loosely refers to “Ghost in the Shell” and to “Ghost in the Machine”, a term coined by Gilbert Ryle. “Ghost in the Machine” shows the absurdity of the mind-body dualism.
