Coordinating Measurements in Uncertain Participatory Sensing Settings

Alexandros Zenonos, Sebastian Stein, Nicholas R. Jennings
2018 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
Recently, there has been considerable interest in participatory sensing as a paradigm for such large-scale data collection because it is cost-effective and able to capture more fine-grained data than traditional  ...  To address these challenges, it is necessary to guide and to coordinate participants, so they take measurements when it is most informative.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to acknowledge the use of the IRIDIS High Performance Computing Facility, and associated support services at the University of Southampton, in the completion of this  ...

A Trust Framework for Social Participatory Sensing Systems [chapter]

Haleh Amintoosi, Salil S. Kanhere
2013 Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering  
In this paper, we propose an application-agnostic trust framework for social participatory sensing.  ...  The integration of participatory sensing with online social networks affords an effective means to generate a critical mass of participants, which is essential for the success of this new and exciting  ...  As such, we discuss about related research focussing on trust issues in participatory sensing. In a participatory sensing system, trustworthiness can be viewed as the quality of the sensed data.  ...
