Biosensing technologies increasingly become more widely used in both research and in consumer market. This increasing accessibility of technologies that can track, represent, and respond to our physiological activities presents expanding opportunities but also many challenges. This technology can allows to reconnect with our bodies, support health and emotion regulation, aid empathy and social connection, and many assist in many other domains.
However, it also presents a range of questions and challenges pertaining to ethics, representation, meaning-making and divergent contexts of use. In this project we aim to bring together expertise from diverse backgrounds of researchers, designers, developers and policy makers to begin to develop a research agenda and best practices of integrating biosignals in Human-Computer Interaction. To achieve that, we organize workshops brining the community together to discuss emerging challenges.
I perform the project management role leading the organization of the workshops.
