AB - The increasing generation and collection of personal data has created acomplex ecosystem, often collaborative but sometimes combative, aroundcompanies and individuals engaging in the use of these data. We propose thatthe interactions between these agents warrants a new topic of study: Human-DataInteraction (HDI). In this paper we discuss how HDI sits at the intersection ofvarious disciplines, including computer science, statistics, sociology,psychology and behavioural economics. We expose the challenges that HDI raises,organised into three core themes of legibility, agency and negotiability, andwe present the HDI agenda to open up a dialogue amongst interested parties inthe personal and big data ecosystems.
