Would you let technology measure, chart, and optimize your relationships?

How open are you to measuring your heart rate and other data to get recommendations on what people makes you happy, anxious, or bored?
pplkpr is a combination of technology and scientific research attempting to measure, chart, and optimize your relationships.
I’m very keen to try it out and see if my gut feelings about a person correlates with the programmatic data gathered.

“Based on patterns, algorithms will determine whether you should be spending more time with a certain person or if you should cut him out altogether.”
“A heart rate wrist band measures the subtle changes in your heart rate, alerting you to spikes in stress or excitement. This biometric data is correlated with information you manually input about the people you’re hanging out with.”
