Data, data, data. The term is ubiquitous nowadays, and the public is bombarded with stories of government agencies amassing sensitive data or of big corporations wielding huge datasets to their benefit. It's everywhere, even in the realm of sharing our emotions. Today's media saturation affords us greater ease and transparency of emoting, but it comes at the cost of privacy. We want to share our emotions in the midst of our busy lives while harnessing the power of technology to gain insight from our private data.


MyMood offers an accessible, personable interface to record emotions and provides an accompanying log and stats. Through Alexa, users can quickly note their mood and the activity they have done, whenever convenient. MyMood gives appropriate feedback through encouragement, quotes, congratulations, and more. Test users enjoy this level of engagement, which VUI is well equipped to serve when they are recording something as personal as their feelings. Later, users can access all their entries sorted in various ways, complete with visualizations in GUI or stats in VUI, to get a wide range of views into their moods. This projects uses Amazon DynamoDB for database storage.
