How Can Data Collection Help Psychological Science?

Technology — from smartphones to biosensors to surveillance monitors — is advancing so quickly it is almost impossible to keep up. One of the theme programs at the 2014 APS Annual Convention, to be held May 22–25 in San Francisco, California, addresses how psychological science can harness these innovations as well as how psychological scientists can help inform the work of those developing the complex technology. Five leaders in the field will discuss their methods of using technology to advance psychological science and gain insight into human behavior. They will also examine potential pros and cons of such research.
