We are proud to announce another Auracle team member’s successful dissertation defense, and to share his doctoral thesis. Dr. Byron Lowens’ dissertation focuses on understanding how to develop privacy control mechanisms that provide adopters (and potential adopters) of wearables with integrated, in-the-moment control over personal information collected by wearables. Lowens describes the four different studies he conducted, on individual preferences on data sharing, the impact of the location of privacy control and decision timing, device-independent interactions to control data privacy, and on noticeability of identified interactions. His findings offer privacy researchers and designers of wearable technologies insight into the future development of wearables.
