SHORT TALK: "CitiSense: Results from a User Study of a Real-Time Mobile Air Quality Sensing Platform",
Speaker: Elizabeth Bales (Postdoctoral researcher in CS & Human Centered Design at UW and Google Anita Borg Scholar)
Abstract: In this presentation I will present the results of an "in the wild" user study looking at the CitiSense real-time mobile air quality sensor. The sensor is the first of it's kind, and allows for individuals to see their personal pollutant exposure in real time. Participants were encouraged to carry the sensors for a month and reported on how having access to the air data in real time changed how they thought about their environment, and how this influenced their individual behaviors and their interactions with others.
