Pubsense @ NordiCHI

Capture25

After a silly amount of Time, Petr Slovak and I have finally published our Pubsense study at NordiCHI this year. In this work we explored how empathetic people were when talking with their friends in pubs, by looking at skin conductance synchronisation. We were able to conclude that there was at least reactivity even if we couldn’t be sure it was empathy – though the context may suggest it. If you’d like to read the paper, it’s available here. It’s nice to see vicarious being used for something other than measuring thrill, and any research that can be done in a pub certainly scores points in my book. Shout out to The Johnson Arms for hosting us.
