Looking back over the past decade, there is no doubt that the impact of mobile technology on our personal lives has been extensive. Often technology is even seen as a solution in itself that will magically bring about solutions to all of our problems. While there is huge potential for using the rapidly evolving platform of internet-connected, cloud-enabled, machine learning, context-aware, mobile/wearable devices to create novel applications and services to address problems and challenges in all sectors of society, it is imperative that we put humans first when designing such interventions. This requires a deeper understanding of what people do in their lives and how they use technology.


Through examples from past and current research projects, this talk will explore the potential of personal mobile computers and sensors as a tool for researchers to conduct large-scale studies in order to gain insights into human experiences in natural contexts, and how this information can be used to inform the design of better interactions.  ​
