Enabling Foresight and Reflection: Interactive Simulations to Support Behaviour Change
Lisa Koeman, Yvonne Rogers
The domains of personal informatics and persuasive technology have largely focused on supporting self-reflection using previously collected data. In contrast, we argue for a different novel approach: projecting forwards by enabling foresight. By developing interactive simulations that can provide people with predictions on how their current or theoretical behaviour will impact their goals, we hope to encourage them to connect to the future. To study the usefulness of such foresight, we will develop and evaluate a multi-faceted system aimed at supporting sustainable lifestyles for urban inhabitants.
