Qualified Selves: Co-Creating Meaning Post-Big Data
Qualified Selves is a joint project between Lancaster and Edinburgh Universities. Its novel approach to co-design and co-creation has so far allowed for new and exciting prototypes to be developed to help us think about tracking data in different ways.
