Joseph A. Paradiso and Daniel Siewiorek guest-edit an issue of IEEE Pervasive Computing: "Attention—Yours vs. Theirs"


Joseph A. Paradiso, director of the Responsive Environments research group, co-edited the April–June 2020 issue of IEEE Pervasive Computing, "Attention—Yours vs. Theirs."

In their introduction to the issue, Dr. Paradiso and Daniel Siewiorek (Carnegie Mellon University) write, "[In] this Special Issue, we set out to explore this topic as projected into twin demons relating to attention—unwanted attention paid to us versus our own attention being unwittingly diverted—i.e., the danger of living in a Panopticon versus the specter of our personal cognitive resources being fragmented and deleteriously diverted by too many competing digital factions that exploit intimate knowledge of their users (itself informed by ubiquitous sensing)."
