The panel will explore how sensors can shape the future of work and personal life to make people happier and healthier. Ubiquitous sensors have the power to measure every aspect of people's work, home, and bodies 24/7. Yet can sensors be used as a workplace "big brother"? How can we ensure that these technologies are used for greater individual and societal good? This panel presents cutting edge research on human sensing that can subtly influence human actions and perceptions, such as jewelry that regulates appetite and camera signals that detect emotion. Panelists from industry and academia include technologists who develop state of the art sensors and experts in human-computer interaction and psychology who will discuss the potential impact of sensors for workplace health and wellbeing.
