Fitbit for the mind: Eye-tracker watches your reading

Devices able to log everything you read will soon go mainstream, letting you see for yourself whether your reading habits need revamping

What’s catching your eye?

ADDICTED to the Mail Online’s infamous celebrity tittle-tattle and not spending enough time in Hemingway’s company? A new breed of device could soon be logging everything you read, letting you see for yourself whether your reading habits need revamping.

The “quantified self” movement has spawned wearable gadgets like Fitbit and FuelBand, which monitor physical fitness, telling you how far you’ve walked or how many calories you’ve burned. How about logging how much you read on screens instead? Like a Fitbit for the mind.

A “cognitive activity tracker” developed by Kai Kunze at Osaka Prefecture University in Japan can tell how many words we read, how often and how fast we read, and even whether we are skim reading or actually concentrating on the content. It could also generate summaries of documents as you read them by logging which passages your eyes dwell on.

Such detail about what we look at, whether on a screen or on paper, is being made possible by the emergence of gaze-trackers – devices that monitor our eyes to analyse where we are looking. Swedish firm Tobii Technology is leading the way in commercialising the technology. It has developed a $99 system that uses infrared cameras trained on the cornea to watch for the eyeball’s movements. These cameras can be built into a headset, such as Google Glass, or clipped to the top of a computer screen or tablet.

“Eye-tracking cameras can be built into a headset, such as Google Glass, or clipped to your screen”

This year Tobii will launch its first consumer eye-tracking system for video games, in conjunction with gaming headset maker SteelSeries of Copenhagen, Denmark. This will allow in-game characters to react to the player’s gaze, adding a spooky level of realism to first-person shooters. Crucially, the low price puts eye-tracking systems within everyone’s reach, says Ralf Biedert, Tobii’s chief interaction researcher, based in Stockholm.

Kunze is taking the technology in a different direction. In tests on volunteers wearing infrared eye-tracking glasses , his team found that their software could count the number of words read with an accuracy of about 94 per cent, and tell how fast you were reading, purely by looking at the movement of the eyes. By asking their volunteers to read different types of materials – novels, fashion magazines, newspapers, research papers and textbooks – they have shown that these various media can be discerned near perfectly from the way readers’ eyes move around their telltale layouts.

For example, users would get Fitbit-style metrics on how much time they spend – or waste – reading celebrity gossip when they should be revising. Or, says Kunze, publishers could work out if textbook designs need rethinking by seeing how readers navigate their pages. If the software knows what the document is – a novel being read on a Kindle, say – then more advanced features can be used. “It could lead to adaptive reading materials in which the computer recognises I have trouble understanding a particular word and changes the text in real time to give me the definition in the next sentence,” he says. Kunze will reveal more at the Augmented Human meeting in Kobe, Japan, in March.

Eye-tracking experts are abuzz. “I find it difficult to be consciously aware of my reading habits and my ability to absorb the textual information that surrounds me. So a reading log like this would really provide new insight, and hopefully help me improve,” says Jayson Turner at the University of Lancaster, UK, who has developed a system that lets people drag and drop computer files using an eye-tracker. He thinks Kunze’s system will be perfect for quickly summarising what fascinates us.

“It could infer which topics we find interesting, filtering out information we find irrelevant and recording what’s important for later recall,” Turner says.

Biedert says gaze-trackers could have a profound impact. “It’s like when the computer mouse was invented: controlling computers with your eyes will be supported in more and more applications and we cannot tell yet what they will be.”

  • Specialty buyers. Although time and expense reporting is generally considered a feature of PSA software, it could also be considered a function human resources or accounting , and similar features can be found in any number of other specialty suites, including construction software , manufacturing software  or others. If you fit into one of these categories, take a look at those buyers guide to see if other solutions might be more appropriate for your needs.
  • Large professional services firms. Large consulting operations likely won’t be happy with a basic time and expense tracking program. With the right resources, a more comprehensive PSA solution like Clarizen or AtTask would be a much better fit.
  • Medium or rapidly growing professional services firms. We usually find that this is the sweet spot for the best-of-breed time and expense tracking programs. These will be focused on optimizing the features described above, and are designed to take medium-sized businesses to the next phase of their growth cycle. Example products include Deltek Maconomy, Replicon Web TimeSheet and Sage Timeslips.
  • Small businesses and solopreneurs. There are a number of free solutions, both for computers and for smartphones, which perform the basic functions listed above. Even with cross-user compatibility, these subscription-based solutions are very affordable for companies on even the tightest budget. Products to consider include 1DayLater and Harvest.

2016 Review of Time and Billing Systems

by Mary Girsch-Bock, Contributing Writer On Dec 15, 2016 | Share | Share | Share | Share

For professional service firms, it’s difficult to place a value on the importance of time and billing software. For accounting and tax firms, this can be critical, even if your firm bills clients at a flat rate for services rendered.

Rather than being seen as a micro-management tool, time and billing systems provide your employees with the tools they need to track individual tasks, as well as help with project management and work flow; particularly when several employees are working on different portions of a project.

Along with keeping a handle on hours worked, time and billing applications also provide management with the tools they need to stay on top of workflow, and profitability, providing access to vital data such as productivity levels of staff, billing rates for each project, and whether a project is profitable or a waste of staff time and money.

These products do much more than simply track employee time. They also create timesheets, client invoices, and help to ensure that complex projects don’t get bogged down by aiding in workflow management as well.

In this issue, we reviewed a variety of Time & Billing systems which included the following:

  • Accountants World
  • BigTime
  • BillQuick
  • Chrometa
  • ImagineTime
  • TPS Time & Billing
  • TSheets
  • ClockShark

While the features and functionality vary between products, they all offer solid time tracking and invoicing capability; though many contain advanced functionality as well.

While reviewing these products, we looked at six different categories; chosen in order to give you the most complete look at each of the products. These categories include: Basic System Functions – This are looks at system navigation, customization capabilities, and deployment options that area available such as on-premise versus cloud.

Time Tracking Capabilities – this is fairly straightforward, as we examine the time tracking features found in the product.

Invoicing Functions – for firms looking to automate the invoicing function, this feature could prove to be crucial. We take a look at whether the product will invoice clients directly, and how easy it is to create an invoice

Management Features – management features can include advanced reporting, productivity analysis, and the availability of project management and workflow management capability.

Integration and Data Management – we look at the integration capabilities of the product, including its ability to integrate with third-party applications, as well as the ability to provide managers with productivity reports and analysis.

Help and Support – Perhaps overlooked, help and support options can play a key role when decided which program to purchase, particularly for the smaller office that has limited staff or IT personnel on-hand to handle issues.

Depending on the needs of your firm, you may only be in the market for basic timekeeping and billing functionality or you may be looking to automate time and billing, handle project management and workflow, and create custom invoices as well. Whatever your needs and desires are, there is likely a time and billing application that is able to fulfill them.

“My team has gone through four time tracking apps in the last two and a half years…”

That's a quote from one of our customers — and it's something we hear a lot .

Your business runs on time. It's the fuel your team uses to start, create, finish projects for yourselves and your clients.

You've got to make sure every minute counts… and can be counted:

  • Does your team have the availability for this new client?
  • Which clients are good to you, and which abuse your time?
  • Is your sales process too long and costly?
  • Are your internal marketing efforts giving a good ROI?
  • Is this team member under-utilized?
  • Where did all that time go?
  • And did you actually bill your client for all the time actually worked?

To answer these questions, you need a perfect handle on your team's time. But you're all so busy. Ironically, tracking your time takes time. Sometimes it takes a lot of time. Your team hates the administrative overhead of logging their time, and so… you suspect (or you know!) that you're mostly getting guesstimates, after the fact.

Those guesstimates lead to bad data, impaired ability to make critical business decisions, and, of course… you can't bill as much, either.

It's not that you're an authoritarian control freak, but you need to know. And it's not that your team is sloppy, but all they really want to do is focus on doing their work.

What if you could both get what you wanted?
