Personal Analytics: How do Individuals and Communities Make Use of their Own Data to Change their Health?
This project, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (SES-1750731), asks how do individuals develop and implement data-intensive health information technologies such as wearable health trackers, alert and reminder systems, personal automation solutions?
What are we doing?
We're in the process of interviewing people who collect and make use of data about their health.
Why are we doing it?
We want to help people have effective deliberations about the future of health and work. We also want to answer fundamental questions about the ways in which changes in communication, organization, technology are intertwined.
