Technology (Non-)Use as a Network in Emerging Tech and Internet of Things

Hosted by Professor Radhika Garg

January 2018

The user has been central to the way technology is conceptualized, designed, used, and studied in sociotechnical research and recently even non-users have started to become productive foci of this analysis.

This webinar discusses (non-)use of emerging technologies, such as Internet of Things, under the lens of “(Non-)user as a network”.

This early work-in-progress argues how power relations of stakeholders (organizations, regulators, policy makers) and social influences affect the way users decide to use or not use a technology.
