Baloo: Personal Informatics for Decision Making
Edward K. Smith, James Purtilo
While decision making is a well-studied area in cognitive psychology, few quantitative tools exist to aid decision making, mitigate the array of biases present in humans, and improve calibration. We are developing such a system, Baloo, that assists users in quantifying and tracking their belief in factual propositions, with the goal of combining these propositions into successful plans. With Baloo, individuals and groups can easily assess the relationship between various beliefs, and improve their predictive accuracy over time. In this paper, we describe the design of Baloo.
