Chapter 5: Smart technologies and our sense of self: Going beyond epistemic counter-profiling
Interaction with data-driven services and technology-rich environments poses challenges to our ability to understand the implications of our decisions or to give meaningful consent that can constrain or legitimise the actions of these systems that increasingly surround us. In this chapter, we draw on examples from the Web, related contemporary data-driven services, and existing concepts from Human-Computer Interaction such as human-centered design, affordance and seamfulness, to establish concepts that can help to shape technologists’ and policy makers’ efforts to build an apparent, transparent and accountable Internet of Things. We focus in particular on the opportunities HCI-oriented designers have to support this vision.
