Self-Tracking & Sousveillance at Work : Insights from HumanComputer Interaction & Social Science

Marta E. Cecchinato, Sandy J. J. Gould, Frederick Harry Pitts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter we consider whether and how new collective practices of shared aggregation and curation of individual data stand to enrich our understanding of the physical and emotional impacts of work and undergird coordinated responses to contemporary societal and industrial challenges around well-being and productivity in the workplace and beyond. Specifically, we are interested in whether there is something potentially emancipatory in these individualised and individualising routines and practices of self-quantification. Can workplace AI, algorithmic measurement and control and other tools for self-quantification be repurposed and wielded in support of collective resistance?
