Conference Paper
There has been increasing interest in socially just use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in the development of technology that may be extended to marginalized people. However, the exploration of such technologies entails the development of an understanding of how they may increase and/or counter marginalization. The use of...
Article
This article draws on the sociology of expectations to examine the construction of expectations of ‘ethical AI’ and considers the implications of these expectations for communication governance. We first analyse a range of public documents in the EU, the UK and Ireland to identify the key actors, mechanisms and issues which structure societal expec...

Mobile technologies are valuable tools for the self-report of mental health and wellbeing. These systems pose many unique design challenges which have received considerable attention within HCI, including the engagement of users. However, less attention has been paid to the use of personal devices in public health. Integrating self-reported data wi...
Chapter
Technologies designed to access our personal worlds have the potential to profoundly influence the way we live and to promote human flourishing. They also require an ethical approach to their design that takes human values into account. Mobile technologies for psychological wellbeing present particular challenges that require a sustainable approach...

Profiling activities used to personalise user content can place online corporations in a position of significant influence over user behaviour. The ability to deliver different search engine results, news feeds, discriminatory prices, and so forth, can be exploited to grant unequal access to different kinds of content. This is likely to intensify w...
Chapter
This proposal outlines a plan for bridging the gap between technology experts and society in the domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The proposal focuses primarily on Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology, which is a major part of AI and offers the advantage of addressing problems that non-experts can understand. More precisely, the goal...
Article
Background: Maternal mental health impacts both parental well-being and childhood development. In the United Kingdom, 15% of women are affected by depression during pregnancy or within 1 year of giving birth. Suicide is a leading cause of perinatal maternal mortality, and it is estimated that >50% of perinatal depression cases go undiagnosed. Mobil...
Conference Paper
The recent news of a large-scale online tracking campaign involving Facebook users, which gave way to systematic misuse of the collected user-related data, have left millions of people deeply concerned about the state of their online privacy as well as the state of the overall information security in the cyber world. While most to-date revelations...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Health and wellbeing applications increasingly raise ethical issues for design. User-centred and participatory design approaches, while grounded in everyday wisdom, cannot be expected to address ethical reflection consistently, as multiple value systems come into play. We explore the potential of phronesis, a concept from Aristotelian virtue ethics...
Article
Full-text available
Interactivity is central to digital products, systems and experiences. It has long been studied from different disciplinary perspectives but while applications continue to be described as ‘more’ or ‘less’ interactive, there is a lack of consensus on its meaning. One approach to improving understanding is to focus on the different ways we talk about...

Article
Full-text available
This study offers new insights into interactivity by examining its association with empowerment in public discourse. Using data from 20 years of newspaper coverage, a mixed methods analysis reveals different ‘modes’ of interactivity in discourse. Empowerment is the dominant mode of interactivity despite substantial changes in technologies and uses...
Article
Full-text available
Interactivity is widely acknowledged but poorly understood. This paper discusses the meaning of interactivity, comparing the literature with findings from a discourse analysis, which picks apart how we talk about interactivity. The discussion specifically explores aesthetic interactivity, one of several themes found circulating in public discourse....

This article argues that small states have a significant contribution to make to international communications research, which is dominated by a large state event-oriented outlook. A study of newspaper reporting on developing countries in Ireland shows significant coverage in genres neglected by research to date, beyond the ‘international news’ page...
