Stalking 2.0
Jordan Frank , McGill

Area: Machine Learning


I have recently taken part in the Nokia Mobile Data Challenge (MDC). Nokia has provided over a year's worth of data collected from the mobile phones of 38 people in Lausanne, Switzerland. The data include wifi, gsm, and gps signal measurements, accelerometer measurements, call logs, and application usage. I will present a set of tools that I have developed to visualize and analyse this data, as well as some preliminary results from our paper "Generating storylines from mobile phone data" (submitted to the Nokia MDC Workshop), in which we proposed a method for translating from mobile phone sensor data to English-language descriptions of events.
