Everyone is talking about big data. Yet your life is filled with small data problems: your office, your phone, your kitchen, and much more. While big data is a big challenge, it’s a big challenge for organizations. When it comes to everyday people and their everyday lives, the big challenge is small data.
What is small data and how do we design for it?
This talk will show how dealing with small data means understanding how people are connected to their environment. This is an embodied interaction perspective. It’s not about the information, or the person, or the environment. It’s about how people are embedded in, and interact with, their environment. Drawing from research on embodiment, distributed cognition, and natural user interfaces, this talk will identify key concepts for rethinking the everyday challenge of small data.
