Dr. John Parker - Sensors and Sensibility: Using Wearable Computer Sensors to Measure Social Interactions in Small Groups

This talk will detail my explorations into using wearable computer sensors to measure social interactions in small groups of collaborating scientists. I will argue that sensors have the potential to revolutionize how we study social life, but that using them properly requires understanding some important limitations of this new technology. To end, I will use primary data gathered at two international research centers to demonstrate connections between aspects of group behavior as measured by sensors and scientists' perceptions of individual and group creativity.
