A Great App To Help You Sleep Better

A Great App To Help You Sleep Better

The team behind Runtastic, a popular fitness app, has designed a new app to help improve the way that people sleep.

The app, called Sleep Better, keeps tabs on how you sleep using features like a customized alarm clock and dream analysis.

Confused as to how an app can do this? Sleep Better determines how well you sleep based on your movement in the night, and you input your own data to make the results even more accurate.

For instance, you can tell the app how much caffeine and alcohol you have consumed that day, or if you exercised.

When you wake up, Sleep Better will ask you questions about your dreams and how you feel. The app will also provide you with data on how you slept, including how long you were in a deep sleep, and how efficient your sleep was.

    Cofounder and CEO of Runtastic, Florian Gschwandtner, said: “If we’ve learned anything in recent years, it’s the importance of a balanced, 24-hour approach to overall health and fitness.”

    The app is available for both iOS and Android devices and is fully intergrated with the iOS 8 HealthKit, a tool that combines health-related data for the user.

    Many people have tested the app, and the reviews are mixed. Some users comment on the app’s simplicity, while others say that the app is good for tracking your sleep but does not actually help you to sleep better.

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    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.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. 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.
