Analytics, the computational analysis of data, have made their way into our daily lives. Common apps exist that track our dietary choices, our running routes, even our sleep. With real-time information about things that are important to us, we can make changes—behavioral or environmental changes targeted at improving those data. Consider the popular Fitbit, an inexpensive device worn as a wristband, which feeds continuous streams of data to an online repository where they are crunched, compiled, and presented as easy-to-read graphs, serving as a competitive “nudge” by pitting you against yourself or your friends.
