A Computational Social Science Framework For Visualizing the Possibility Space of Consumer-Object Assemblages From Iot Interaction Data

We develop a computational science approach for understanding consumer experience from IoT interactions that is anchored using assemblage theory. Our approach operationalizes the concept of an assemblage’s underlying topological space of possibilities. We analyze structured IoT discourse data to reveal the realized possibility space of consumer-object interactions.
