EEG Headset for Emotion Detection and World’s Largest Multisensor Dataset on Stress Detection Presented at CES 2018

At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, imec has introduced two important breakthroughs in emotion detection and stress level management.

Imec and Holst Centre, a research center established by imec and TNO, have demonstrated a prototype of an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset that can measure emotions and cognitive processes in the brain. The headset is a major breakthrough in emotion measurement for therapeutic, learning and gaming applications.

Also presented at CES 2018 is imec’s multisensor dataset on stress detection, which is the largest of its kind worldwide. The Stress in the Work Environment (SWEET) study captured data from more than 1,000 people and is the first large-scale study that used clinical-grade wearables to establish the link between mental stress and physiological symptoms in daily life.

Chris Van Hoof (Director Wearable Health Solutions, imec) gave a talk on extreme personalization in healthcare with next-generation disruptive wearables, and nearly 10 demos showcased our knowhow at the CES 2018 exhibition.
