Trustworthy opportunistic sensing: A Social Computing Paradigm
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Computing2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
In recent years, technological advances have lead to a society with communication platforms like iPhone and Kinect Xbox that are able to inject sensing presence into online social networks (OSNs). Thus, it is possible to create large-scale opportunistic networks by integrating sensors, applications and social networks and this development could also promote innovative collaborative cyber security models. In this position paper, we discuss how social informatics will play a crucial role in trustworthy pervasive computing. With regard to security, our primary computing paradigm is still about processing information content only in order to make decisions. Given the availability of both digitized social informatics and sensor content, we now have the option to examine these sources simultaneously. We refer to this new era as the Social Computing Paradigm, and we argue that it could be particularly useful in conjunction with opportunistic sensing.
