Well-being&Economy workshop
Description:
Big Data, the masses of digital breadcrumbs produced by the information technologies that humans use in their daily activities, allow us to scrutinize individual and collective behavior at an unprecedented scale, detail, and speed. Building on this opportunity we have the potential capability of creating a digital nervous system of our society, enabling the measurement, monitoring and prediction of relevant aspects of the socio-economic structure in quasi real time.

From people-centric computing and networking to Internet of People

SMARTCOMP 2018, 4th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing, Sicily, Italy
Link:
SMARTCOMP 2018
Description:

In this talk, Marco Conti discusses how the convergence of the cyber and physical world, and the tighter interactions between human users and their personal mobile devices, which are their proxies in the cyber world, are driving to the emergence of people-centric computing and networking paradigms, in which the human behaviour (e.g., the human social organization) becomes a key factor in the design of computing and networking protocols. The current Internet paradigm, which is infrastructure-centric, is not the right one to cope with such emerging scenario.
