portrait sander hermsenTechnological advances have led to the introduction of many new products that measure our behaviour, share these data with other products and services over the internet, and give us feedback on our performance. These new developments hold great promises for healthy and more sustainable behaviour: the integration of our data in every aspect of our lives has the potential to revolutionise our health, safety, and energy use by giving us insights that were previously impossible to obtain.

But are these technologies, commonly known with buzzwords such as Internet of Things, Wearables, eHealth, and Quantified Self Solutions, really as effective as they promise in changing our behaviour ? Evidence from the most recent scientific studies is mixed. What can we expect from this kind of feedback technology ? Are there circumstances in which they are particularly effective ? When is it more likely for these technologies to have little impact ? What can we do to increase the chances of succesful behaviour change through feedback technology ? Are these technologies suitable for policy makers and public sector officials to promote sustained behaviour change, and what are the ethical and practical consequences ?
