I just uploaded an old report on some research that did not become part of my thesis but was pivotal to my PhD journey: Exploring Social Acceptability and Expectations in Communal Use of Smart Home Devices (Research Report) from July 2020.
This report documents an effort to explore communal use in smart homes with a factorial vignette survey based off a qualitative analysis of semi-structured interviews. While the highlights of the survey have been published previously , this paper reports on the full survey. Scripts to build and deploy the survey are available on GitHub. Note, that the survey was an early exploratory effort to get an overview of the space, and that this report is not peer-reviewed. On a personal note: This research was conducted in early 2018. As a result of an early analysis of the data, I decided to focus my research efforts on a more naturalistic perspective later that year. In 2019, I revisited the analysis to salvage any useful information . This report documents the full data set and was written in 2020.
It also highlights some of the shortcomings of the chosen approach and motivates a change of perspective (more on that in my PhD thesis). Young PhD researchers be encouraged that not every experiment or study will work out, but will offer a great learning opportunity.
