The concept of Emotion Hack Day was created by NEMO (Natural Emotions in Digital Interaction), a collective of researchers, media professionals, and developers.

We are working to enrich interaction in digital environments by finding new ways of conveying emotional information. Why? To improve human collaboration, decrease misunderstanding, disconnection and loneliness.

The first Emotion Hack Day was organized in August 2015 in Helsinki. In 2016 we took on the world 🙂

Emotion Hack Day 2016 was locally organized in Montreal by NeuroTechMTL, the Montreal chapter of NeuroTechX. NeuroTechX is a non-profit organization whose mission is to build a strong global neurotechnology community by providing key resources and learning opportunities, and by being leaders in local and world-wide technology initiatives.
