Lucknow University Students’ App to Control Negative Emotions

Any emotion that makes you unhappy or unpleasant is negative. These feelings cause you to dislike both yourself and other people, which lowers your level of self-assurance, self-worth, and overall life pleasure. Hatred, wrath, jealousy, and grief are some negative emotions that might develop. Here is a remedy for it. Software designed by students from Lucknow University can assist you in controlling your bad emotions. A group of BCA students from Lucknow University developed an app to control negative emotions to educate users and assist them in overcoming negative emotions.

Students of the BCA programme Charvi Mishra, Amrendra Maurya, Ashish Singh, Satvik Sharma, Adarsh Mishra, and Yashika Mehrotra presented the application at the Smart India Hackathon 2022 under the software idea category. The programme has received accolades for its narrow focus, design concept, and human-centric use. This application would address the current gaps in mental health care services by utilising the possibilities of digital technology.

How does it work?

The features of this app include:

 Mood tracker: This tool will evaluate a person’s mood as well as the time and activities they conduct each day. The software will try to comprehend the user’s responses to circumstances based on these variables.
● Hormone level tracker: The app will provide information on hormone levels and advice on how to deal with particular types of unfavourable emotions.
● Interaction: There is an interactive feature in the app that will assist users by asking questions about their emotions. It will then respond with a suitable solution to handle the situation.
● Chat with a Counsellor: The app has a chatbox that will connect a user directly to a counsellor.

“This interactive app helps in managing negative emotions. It provides features like a mood tracker, an introspective questionnaire asking questions like “How are you feeling?” and “Why are you feeling this emotion?” and others,” said Puneet Misra, the faculty of computer science at Lucknow University.

Team leader Charvi emphasised the importance of emotions in a student’s life. She said “Emotions are complex yet simple, they just need to be handled optimally,” In response to the question of how the software aids students, Charvi said that it is created in such a way that it offers encouragement and motivation while giving recommendations to the students in an interactive manner. The software also has a lot of tools that might help users deal with bad feelings.

According to sources, the BCA students who created the app advanced to the Smart India Hackathon 2022 senior group finals in the area of software ideas. Additionally, they will begin cooperating with the Department of School Education & Literacy at the Nodal Center Kongu Engineering College in Erode, Tamil Nadu, which is part of the National Council of Educational Research and Training. The group was chosen
through a university-wide internal hackathon that was organised among several groups. The LU students are now travelling to Coimbatore for the final round after showcasing their innovative proposal to other groups from other prestigious universities.

The Smart India Hackathon 2022’s final round will take place on August 25 and 26, following which the winner will be announced. The four teams that will face off against one another later this month include the Lucknow University team.

Lucknow University has been actively taking the lead to assist students in innovating in all areas of competence for the previous few years. Students have been allowed to demonstrate their performance and improve in their disciplines through programmes like TREE (Teaching, Reaching, Embolding, Evolution) and with the assistance of the university’s Entrepreneur Cell.
