MATTHEW BEJTLICH

Matthew (b. 1991) is a data scientist, designer, researcher, musician, and photographer who is fascinated with how we can sustain relationships with each other and the natural world. He aims to foster communities, systems, strategies, and platforms that are more playful, honest, spontaneous, and nurturing at their core. His research exists at the interface of data science, experience design, human-computer interaction, participatory design, data ethics and data provenance, and creativity support tools.  
       For the past ten years, Matthew has been deeply invested in the global electronic music scene, producing electronic music as part of the audio-visual duo Dayspired. He is a current partner at Rhythm Section International (London, UK), where he is being mentored by record label founder Bradley Zero (DJ at BBC Radio 1, NTS Radio, Boiler Room). Soon he will also be exploring more minimal and atmospheric directions in solo work released under his own name.
       Matthew recently graduated with his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) after receiving his MS in Data Science from Brown University. He was a graduate researcher at Brown’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab and the head teaching assistant for the class Machine Learning and Design. He is currently open to full time work and freelancing opportunities.

THE ETHICS OF SELF-TRACKING  

While the emergence of self-tracking devices presents numerous health benefits (e.g. sleep monitoring and “lab on a chip blood sensors”), it also raises important concerns as to how the data is being used and who is using it.
        In this essay, I provide a summary of the book “Self-tracking” by Gina Neff and Dawn Nafus and discuss the key ethical issues at hand with regards to the practice—privacy, data access, transparency, and commercial exploitation—in context with my research and class discussions.
