10a.002.JYU_WP9 - IoB@work

Project - Summary

  • Internet of Behavior (IoB) is a hot topic in understanding consumer behavior and has lately seen increasing interest in the workplace domain as well, but not much in academia so far.
  • The objective of the IoB@Work project is to find suitable models of predicting human behavioral events, and passively encourage positive behavior.
  • In this project, our goal is to build understanding on how can IoB be utilized in improving wellbeing in a knowledge intensive work environment. In order to have means to build this understanding, following subgoals need to be met and understood:
    1. What are the behavior events affecting work wellbeing?
    2. How to detect behavioral events of interest?
    3. How to measure and quantify behavior?
    4. How to encourage positive behavior with the means of IoB?
  • In our approach to operationalize IoB in workplace context we aim for minimal intrusion into employees' privacy by:
    1. utilizing ECCOLA in the design and implementation prase, and
    2. building the experimental data collection platform in laboratory context.

Project - Novelty of Approach

See “Project Summary” section above.

Project - Deliverables

1 Method for capturing IoB
2 Software based on existing methods written in MATLAB/Python/C++
3 Open hardware prototype based on an existing hardware
4 3 reports (experimental setup, results and lessons-learned)
5 1 ECCOLA case study (ethically aligned design of non-invasive measurement system)

Project - Benefits to IAB

IAB member organizations are workplaces with highly skilled workforce executing challenging tasks under time pressure. In a demanding workplace environment, it is important to ensure high staff satisfaction IoB@Work attempts to come up with methods and tools for capturing, understanding and responding to workplace behavior based on certain stimuli. Target is to understand mechanism underlying desired behavior.
