Technology connects people which can be both positive and sometimes negative. The problems arising from tech abuse more broadly and especially in the intimate partner violence setting are now becoming more apparent. Past investigations of these issues have largely been qualitative in nature and conducted by social scientists. Indeed, multiple studies have highlighted the harms caused by gendered tech abuse. However, we have little quantitative analysis of these issues. In this talk, I’ll highlight how our understanding of tech abuse in the intimate partner violence setting can be improved through the creation of data analysis pipelines, the challenges that arise in attempting to study these issues at scale, and some of the strategies that might mitigate these issues.
