A feedback loop to control human behaviour involves four distinct stages: 1. Evidence. A behaviour must be measured, captured, and data stored. 2. Relevance. The information must be relayed to the individual, not in the raw-data form in which it was captured but in a context that makes it emotionally resonant. 3. Consequence. The information must illuminate one or more paths ahead. 4. Action. There must be a clear moment when the individual can recalibrate a behavior, make a choice, and act. Then that action is measured, and the feedback loop can run once more, every action stimulating new behaviors that inch the individual closer to their goals. Action ! Data Context Choice Reaction How much Control do They need ? Shall we provide Data or Information ? 24
