Introducing new technology inherently changes the way people behave. Often there are unintended consequences. Technology driven behaviour change looks to inform the design of our interactions with an aim to direct these behaviour changes in a useful and positive way. However, many of our behaviours become habituated, especially around our use of technology. These kinds of behaviour are robust to interventions. This seminar will highlight this challenge and discuss the potential of technology to identify the formation and existence of these habits and how we might use technology to intervene and ‘break’ existing undesirable habits and perhaps even promote good habits.
