Time: 18:00 - 20:00

Can technology usage be problematic or even addictive?

The obsessive and excessive use of technology is associated with negative life experiences such as anxiety, lack of sleep and depression. Fortunately, technology, unlike other addictive objects, can be designed to track how people are using it and inform them about that usage in an intelligent and interactive way.

Together with experts from StreetScene Rehab Centre and University of Leeds, we will share our research on designing addiction-aware technology and present our Digital Diet app and invite the audience to engage in the discussion.

 

Speakers: Dr Raian Ali, Dr John McAlaney, Professor Keith Phalp, Dr Jacqui Taylor from Bournemouth University and Dr Bridgette Bewick from University of Leeds.
