The ubiquitous availability of feedback influences theory and practice. It impacts our perceptions of ourselves, and of others, as well as the ways in which we interact with technologies and with groups, both real and virtual, local and remote. Thought leaders from academia and industry took conference attendees on a tour that began by exploring the balance between design and technology in fostering behavioral change and ended with the analysis of algorithms measuring peer effects online. This is the mediaX Science & Technology of Feedback Conference.
