Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


By 2020, consumer data collected from wearable devices are estimated to drive 5% of sales from the Global 1000 and the number of smartphone applications (apps) requesting to share consumer data will increase twofold by 2015, indicating a rise in the number of marketers or proprietors who seek access to customer profile data. As human computer interaction (HCI) emerged as a recognized field of study, the philosophical cognition structure was thought to be sufficient. It was assumed that we could apply computational terms to a model of how the mind works. Emotions also play a role in users' level of sharing of data via social networking. Voluntarily, developers and applications publishers should change the opt-out standard to one that depends on a user opting in. As crime increasingly penetrates the wearable mobile computing market, efforts to crack down comprehensively may produce widespread active collaboration with other sorts of pernicious hackers.
