Competing Crowds Balancing Loads in Crowdsensing Applications.
Creating a Noise Map via Collaborative Competition. (Workshop on "Apps and Smartphones - Influence how data is collected").
We are scientists of the TCS Sensor Lab at the Centre Universitaire d'Informatique of the University of Geneva in Switzerland. The Competing Crowds project is part of the program University of Geneva Digital Fellows @swissnex San Francisco and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) - CRSII2-154458 SwissSenseSynergy project.
What We Do
Smart phone sensors give power to the people when used wisely. We explore load reducing data collection approaches and consider privacy as highest good. Our focus are smartphone applications that involve mobile crowds that gather information for the community. Check out our recently conducted real-world application in California.
