WISP

Catherine Oldershaw

Wisp is a collaboration between the city health department, Yueqaio Zhou, and myself. Tasked with reducing the rate of smoking in Pittsburgh, we conducted research and found that most smokers attempt to quit and fail. This propelled us to design a human-centric solution. Our app and embedded device learn from both the existing community of ex-smokers, and the individual attempting to quit, to create a more intuitive, delightful, informative process for sharing and accessing advice and support.
