The Digital Daily : Track your digital behaviours
Can intelligent objects train the digital being to take informed decisions? If yes, then how?
The Digital Daily is a complete record of person’s digital actions in a newspaper format. Similar to flipping through a newspaper to read the world news every morning, digital daily is a collection of all the digital deeds of the previous day along with a page to illustrate and compare it to two days back. It provides a holistic array of the user’s activity (time-based) from waking up in the morning to check WhatsApp messages, to late night Instagram uploads.An activity-based recording in concurrence with a time based model can help to identify personal behaviours.
Digital Natives are the people born in the technological era. How do we understand these digital people? What tools can we use? How can we understand their behaviours and interactions with people and technology? Behaviours of these natives are reflected in their digital activities. The digital daily gathers and analyzes potential cause and effects of these behaviours.
What design solutions can be developed to inform and to bring a positive change in the lives of the digital natives?
How does it work?
The Digital Daily is installable on phones, tables, laptops, and desktops, each reverting with the user’s activity evidence to the digital daily server. This information is curated and configured in the person’s customized newspaper format. The data sources used by the digital daily are customizable, example if the user does not wish to include financial data, he/she can restrict their Bank’s data source. These permissions and settings can be easily revised on the digital daily application.
By reviewing our daily digital actions, it is possible to find our behavioural patterns and its cause and effect. A log that can identify behavioural patterns like a morning commute triggering the need to use Instagram, WhatsApp, pattern of phone conversation with a friend at lunchtime, a pattern revealing excessive email addiction from 09:00- 12:30 could imply a certain personality type. These behaviours also trigger respective aftereffects and with digital daily its possible to identify the causes.
