Not quite following? Well, a new study (published in the Journal of Sleep Research) has Department of Defense researcher Dr. Jaques Reifman presenting a new coffee algorithm to help us optimise our coffee intake and maximise our performance - in layman’s terms; an algorithm to tell us exactly how much coffee we should drink and when.
How would it work, you ask? The algorithm would come in the form of an app enabling you to input your sleep schedule alongside your work schedule with the app crunching the numbers to give you your very own personal recommended dosage of coffee.
The algorithm happens to be effective enough to actually decrease caffeine intake by 65 per cent all whilst increasing alertness by a whopping 64 per cent. Who knew? More definitely isn’t more.
Soldiers-in-training, who probably require and consume more coffee than the average civilian, are currently testing it out. Although this algorithm isn’t currently available to the general public, results can also be achieved through app 2B-Alert, which provides similar predictions but isn’t completely personalised to the user.
As major coffee lovers, this algorithm could be the difference between a healthy brain-boost, and the coffee-fuelled frenzied rampages we're all too familiar with.
