We build digital tools to change behavior and reality, out of a deep understanding of human nature.

What Do We Do in Kayma?

Kayma specializes in solving problems by shaping behavior. The company is headed by Professor Dan Ariely, researcher of Psychology and Behavioral Economics, alongside teams of research, technology, UI design and user experience.We use insights from the field of Behavioral Economics, technological tools and original methodologies of experiment, to create a change in complex sectors such as education, healthcare, finance and infrastructure, and assist public and business organizations in creating proven, measurable and scalable solutions, for improving the quality of life for humans.

The Process:

Behavior Design

Integrating technology with the tools of behavioral economics enables us to create effective and measurable solutions and to implement them on a large scale.

Technology and Design

Our multidisciplinary team creates the tools and interfaces for our studies, based on research and development, data analysis, and user-interface expertise.

Research and Experimentation

Every challenge we address is analyzed and tested with various research methods. We explore and identify behavioural alternatives and conduct a large-scale field experiment.

National Projects

Kayma spearheads the National Behavioral Economics Initiative of the Ministry of Finance. As part of this initiative, the company plans and executes a series of large-scale research and experimental projects, revolving around challenges faced by the government, which aims to improve the life of citizens. The experiments are carried out among hundreds of thousands of Israelis, and their results supply policy makers with tools for decision making and an infrastructure for building Israel's future strategy based on these issues.

The Citizen’s Personal Zone

Kayma is leading the interface and behavioral design of the “personal zone” platform, unified across all government ministries, as part of a national project by the Government Information and Communications Technology Authority (ICT) and the Ministry of Finance’s Budgets Division. This online platform will concentrate government services specific to the user’s individual needs and provide greater ease of access to them, thereby encouraging individuals to act more responsibly, economically, and efficiently.
Concept for Gov.il Personal Zone


According to HMO statistics, twenty-five percent of Israelis fail to show up at their scheduled appointment with a specialist or for surgery – and prolong the waiting period for all the rest. In a joint project with Clalit HMO and the Ministry of Finance, we managed to reduce the phenomenon by thirty percent – in a field experiment which included over 160 thousand Israelis. The change is expected to save 400 thousand waiting days per year. The complete results will be published soon
