human-building interaction

Matching smart home data exploitation results with users' real behaviour

Home-based digital devices increasingly record data and send it to cloud services (vacuum robot data for sale). Beyond the obvious privacy problem, there are open questions of how this data matches with the self-representation users have of their own behaviour, or even the degree to which the interpretation of the data faithfully represents their actual behaviour.

Visualizing the user in the building data

With the advent of Big Data, the means of collecting data have been improved in the last decade. However, the extraction of information out of it becomes more and more difficult; the danger of getting lost in data increases.

The combination of Human Computer Interaction and information visualization has the potential to let humans explore data sets interactively to discover unforeseen patterns, for instance detecting failures in systems or understanding specific optimization potential.
