A Survey for investigating human and smart devices relationships



This dataset reports responses to a survey designed for investigating the relationship that humans have with their smart devices. The dataset has been collected in May-July 2020 and is a sample of over 500 respondents of various different ethnicities and backgrounds. These data have been used for modelling the ways people relate to their devices using the notion of agency. However, the data can be used for complementing any study that intends to investigate a tool-mediated communication from the perspective of the users and via a variety of attitudes and expectations the users invest in their devices and in themselves as users. This article presents the survey items as well as some raw data insights. The data have been collected in English and answers have been anonymized in order to ensure GDPR compliance. They are stored in a .csv file containing the respondents’ answers to the questions. The reference contact for this data at Tilburg University is Francesco Lelli The paper "A Dataset for Studying How Human Relates to their Smart Devices" provide an extensive description of the data as well as the methodology for collecting the samples.
