Phan Thanh Cong, Nguyen Thanh Toan, Nguyen Quoc Viet Hung, Bela Stantic
2018 Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics - WIMS '18  
Participatory sensing has emerged as a new data collection paradigm, in which humans use their own devices (cell phone accelerometers, cameras, etc.) as sensors.  ...  Moreover, the participatory sensing data are time series that not only exhibit highly irregular dependencies on time, but also vary from sensor to sensor.  ...  Algorithm 2 Validation process for fact checking Input: A participatory sensing data p D, a validation goal ∆, and a user effort budget b.  ...

Participatory Sensing: Building Empowering Surveillance

Katie Shilton
2010 Surveillance & Society  
This paper uses ethnographic data collected in a sensing development laboratory to illuminate possibilities that participatory sensing holds for equitable use, meaningful community participation, and empowerment  ...  But the emergent, wide-scale sensing systems that phones support pose a number of questions. Who will control the necessary infrastructure for data storage, analysis, sharing, and retention?  ...  I would also like to thank the participatory sensing group at CENS (especially Betta Dawson, Hossein Falaki, John Hicks, Donnie Kim, Younhun Kim, Nithya Ramanthan, Sasank Reddy and Josh Selsky), for discussion  ...
