Human-Data Interaction Through Design
What happens after the workshop is finished?
Even though workshops are often wonderful even if they don’t have a legacy, we really do want to have an impact beyond the event itself.
HDI is a fledgling movement, and it responds to a very real need to develop ways to understand our relationship with data in a holistic manner. We really believe in the future of HDI, and that’s why we’re running the workshop in the first place.
We will use the materials generated during the workshop to produce a workshop report. In addition, and contingent on consensus among participants, we will propose a Special Issue of TOCHI around the topics discussed.
We are keen to bring together various communities and projects interested in HDI. These include:
Human Data Interaction: Legibility, Agency, Negotiability, is a ‘network plus’ funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The HDI network runs from July 2018 to June 2021.
Human Data Interaction (HDI) is a BBC R&D programme of research that is committed to developing technologies that support digital rights in relation to personal data, and creating meaningful and accountable interactions between people, data, and digital systems.
The DataBox, an instantiation of HDI, is a personal networked device (and associated services) that collates and mediates access to personal data. The DataBox would exist as a physical object in the home which enables the users with the possibilities of physical interactions with it. It is a solution which could help data to be collected, combined and processed in ways that would let the users explore workflows and manage their own data and data involving other stake-holders ( through ad hoc social interaction ).
Horizon Digital Economy Research Hub is a Research Institute centred at The University of Nottingham and a Research Hub within the UKRI Digital Economy programme. Horizon brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines to investigate the opportunities and challenges arising from the increased use of digital technology in our everyday lives, where among other interests, HDI is a key themes of research.
Design Research Works is a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship held by Joseph Lindley which is promoting the value of Design Research to understand the 21st century’s complex socio-technological challenges - including HDI.
