Connect and connectivity: revealing a world of interactions

Hakvoort, Gido (2013) Connect and connectivity: revealing a world of interactions. In: University of Birmingham Graduate School Research Poster Conference 2013 , 12th June 2013, University of Birmingham. (Unpublished)



Connectivity is embedded into our modern day society. Devices rely increasingly on permanent network connections, people keep connected through social networks and technological advances allow everyday objects to become part of large networks of interconnected entities. Within these networks connectivity allows for the design of novel interaction methods by utilising the digital input and output capabilities of connected entities. However, when specifically designing for interaction, entities become entangled and remain oblivious of each other’s features. This poster presents the current progress in opening up the space of connectivity in order to reveal and make use of the available technological capabilities. Identifying communities of objects, people and devices and provide the means to discover, and make use of the technological properties of each element, treating them as an interacting ecosystem of complex adaptive systems and networks in physical spaces.
