Mobile phones have recently been used to collect large-scale continuous data about human behavior. In a paradigm known as people centric sensing, users are not only the carriers of sensing devices, but also the sources and consumers of sensed events. This paper describes a data collection campaign wherein Nokia N95 phones are allocated to a heterogeneous sample of nearly 170 participants from Lausanne, a mid-tier city in Switzerland, to be used over a period of one year. The data collection…

People-centric mobile sensing with a pragmatic twist: from behavioral data points to active user involvement
TLDR
A two-stage approach to analyse mobile phone data to extract mobile phone usage and interview the participants concerning their perceptions toward context-aware services offers complementary insights, both to researchers and users, about the feasibility of and the expectations about personalized mobile services.
Characterizing a user from large-scale smartphone-sensed data
TLDR
A feature-based labeling method to characterize users, where eight features from three aspects, i.e., daily mobility, user daily schedule, and social ability, are designed within a time window and the features' correlation and variation over time are analyzed.
Opportunistic Discovery of Personal Places Using Multi-Source Sensor Data
TLDR
A segmentation approach that utilizes a user's personal data obtained from multiple sensor sources and devices such as the battery recharge behavior, step counts, and sleep patterns, to opportunistically fill gaps in the user’s location traces is presented.
Data Mining and Visualization of Large Human Behavior Data Sets
TLDR
This paper describes the deployment of a large-scale study designed to measure human interactions across a variety of communication channels, with high temporal resolution and spanning multiple years—the Copenhagen Networks Study, using state-of-the-art smartphones as social sensors.
Discovering human places of interest from multimodal mobile phone data
TLDR
An extensive set of experiments have been performed to show the benefits of using the proposed framework, using data from the real life of 8 users over 5 continuous months of natural phone usage.

  • 2017
TLDR
This work proposes a new segmentation approach that opportunistically fills gaps in location traces with the help of other types of secondary information (e.g., sleep and battery charging data), possibly from multiple devices of the same user.

TLDR
A probabilistic model is proposed to predict the user profile of a customer, namely gender and age, based on usage behaviors of mobile applications, phone brand and model, from a huge pool of information hidden in a dataset provided by TalkingData company.
Mining Social Distance from Mobile Phone Communication Networks
TLDR
A time-constrained homogeneous graph model, which takes a mobile call log as input and models the social distance problem by a time-based sliding window scheme and an efficient modified EdgeRank algorithm to compute the social distances among users is proposed.
Discovering places of interest in everyday life from smartphone data
TLDR
An extensive set of experiments has been performed to show the benefits of using the proposed framework, using data from the real life of a significant number of users over almost a year of natural phone usage.

Sensing meets mobile social networks: the design, implementation and evaluation of the CenceMe application
TLDR
The CenceMe application is presented, which represents the first system that combines the inference of the presence of individuals using off-the-shelf, sensor-enabled mobile phones with sharing of this information through social networking applications such as Facebook and MySpace.
Inferring friendship network structure by using mobile phone data
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is possible to accurately infer 95% of friendships based on the observational data alone, where friend dyads demonstrate distinctive temporal and spatial patterns in their physical proximity and calling patterns that allow the prediction of individual-level outcomes such as job satisfaction.
What did you do today?: discovering daily routines from large-scale mobile data
TLDR
A framework built from two Hierarchical Bayesian topic models to discover human location-driven routines from mobile phones is presented, using location- driven bag representations of people's daily activities obtained from celltower connections.
Behavioral Entropy of a Cellular Phone User
TLDR
This paper analyzes the behavior of cellular phone users and identifies behavior signatures based on their calling patterns and quantifies and infer the re- lationship of a person’s randomness levels using information entropy based on the location of the user, time of the call, inter-connected time, and duration of thecall.
People-centric urban sensing
TLDR
This paper proposes MetroSense, a new people-centric paradigm for urban sensing at the edge of the Internet, at very large scale which is based fundamentally on three design principles: network symbiosis, asymmetric design, and localized interaction.
Reality mining: sensing complex social systems
TLDR
The ability to use standard Bluetooth-enabled mobile telephones to measure information access and use in different contexts, recognize social patterns in daily user activity, infer relationships, identify socially significant locations, and model organizational rhythms is demonstrated.
Eigenbehaviors: identifying structure in routine
TLDR
This work identifies the structure inherent in daily behavior with models that can accurately analyze, predict, and cluster multimodal data from individuals and communities within the social network of a population with the potential for this dimensionality reduction technique to infer community affiliations within the subjects’ social network.
Smartphones: An Emerging Tool for Social Scientists
TLDR
The authors argue that the technological and social transformations of the smartphone have produced a new kind of device: a programmable mobile phone, the smartphone.
Computational Social Science
TLDR
It is found that origination rates of marine bivalves increased significantly almost everywhere immediately after the K-Pg mass extinction event, and a distinct pulse of bivalve diversification in the early Cenozoic was concentrated mainly in tropical and subtropical regions.
Design of Everyday Things
