Got ADHD? Try These Sleep Apps For Snoozing Soundly

See if these sound familiar: persistent short attention span, distractability, and procrastination. Those are just a few of the characteristics of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (or ADHD). If you carry that specific diagnosis already, or sometimes just feel like your attention is waning, you will want to check out some of these applications that cater to those individuals. The apps are made to provide a helping hand in getting to sleep by limiting external distractions.

Despite some claims that certain people with ADHD are more creative, it can be difficult to fall asleep easily when a person’s mind is racing. Not everyone wants to take medications (although you should always follow your doctor’s recommendations), and there are alternative modalities for addressing ADHD.

      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

      Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

      Does technology have all the answers?

      This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

      Creating technological solutions transparently

      This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

      Technology as the connecting tool

      Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
