Networks Sensors and Social Streams

Our new paper: Wireless Networks Sensors and Social Streams.

The paper introduces a new approach for using wireless sensors on mobile phones for integrating data from social networks. We describe existing models for integrating sensors and social networks, as well as propose a new practical approach for social context-aware data discovery that uses mobile phone as proximity sensor. Our concept uses wireless networks sensors from mobile phones (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) as presence sensor that can open (discover) access for some content published in the social networks. And an appropriate mobile service (context-aware browser client for social networks) can present that information to mobile subscribers. As the potential use-cases for the proposed approach we can mention all projects related to hyper-local news data. For example, proximity marketing, Smart City news, indoor information delivery, etc.
