Speaker’s Corner: Human behaviour between technology and synchronisation

The importance of synchronisation in human relationships. Shkurta Gashi, a PhD candidate at USI Faculty of Informatics, investigates how this element affects human behaviour. The degree of synchronisation between individuals in specific contexts, such as a classroom, was measured with smartwatches’ help. It was observed that greater synchronisation leads to more positive emotions in this context.

Speakers’ Corner is a project promoted by the City of Lugano and the Lugano Living Lab, in which USI, together with other universities in Southern Switzerland, also participated: an initiative that stems from the desire to promote concrete projects to raise awareness on digital issues by enhancing skills in the area.
