Digitialisation enables human-machine interaction and interaction between people over great geographic distances. Digitalisation also gives rise to large amounts of data, not least that associated with the phenomenon of industrial IT, social media and the Internet of Things. The question is how can all this data be transformed into meaningful information and provide a basis for better decisions and actions.
More specifically, we examine how explorative data visualisation can inform and be used to create meaning from otherwise incalculable amounts of data. An additional example of large information and communication platforms are our social media. Here we are interested in how interaction takes place, both with and through the media, and how use shapes the media. We also conduct research on digital materiality and research into IT use, interaction and experiences - the interactions between humans and computers and within different types of social activities.
