SEMINAR AUG 24 – The first article to be presented and discussed in the IOTAP seminar series is Human-Data Interaction: The Human Face of the Data-Driven Society.
ABSTRACT – The increasing generation and collection of personal data has created a complex ecosystem, often collaborative but sometimes combative, around companies and individuals engaging in the use of these data. We propose that the interactions between these agents warrants a new topic of study: Human-Data Interaction (HDI). In this paper we discuss how HDI sits at the intersection of various disciplines, including computer science, statistics, sociology, psychology and behavioural economics. We expose the challenges that HDI raises, organised into three core themes of legibility, agency and negotiability, and we present the HDI agenda to open up a dialogue amongst interested parties in the personal and big data ecosystems.
PhD student Fredrik Ohlin presents, and then discussion follows. The seminar is open for everybody interested, and for PhD students it is possible to follow the seminar series in terms of a PhD course.
