From people-centric computing and networking to Internet of People

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.

Description:

Modern movement tracking technologies enable acquisition of high-quality data about movements of the players and the ball in the course of a football match. However, there is a big difference between the raw data and the insights into team behaviors that analysts would like to gain. To enable such insights, it is necessary first to establish relationships between the concepts characterizing behaviors and what can be extracted from data. This task is challenging since the concepts are not strictly defined.

9th Italian Information Retrieval Workshop (IIR) 2018
Description:

Online social media are a major venue of public discourse today, hosting the opinions of hundreds of millions of individuals. Social media are often credited for providing a technological means to break information barriers and promote diversity and democracy. In practice, however, the opposite effect is often observed: users tend to favor content that agrees with their existing world-view, get less exposure to conflicting viewpoints, and eventually create “echo chambers” and increased polarization.

Dortmund conference:Das nächste Level der Mobilität
Description:

Data science created unprecedented opportunities but also new risks. Data Science techniques might expose sensitive traits of individuals and invade their privacy, and this information could be used to discriminate people based on their presumed characteristics, or profiles. Gartner stated that, within 2018, half of business ethics violations will occur through improper use of Big Data analytics. Often, the achievements of data science are the result of re-interpreting available data for analysis goals that differ from the original reasons motivating data collection.
