The 2nd International Workshop on Social Sensing (SocialSens 2017) will be held in Pittsburgh, PA in April 2017.
The 2nd International Workshop on Social Sensing (SocialSens 2017) will be collocated with CPS Week and held in Pittsburgh, PA, April 21, 2017. Social sensing has emerged as a new paradigm for collecting sensory measurements by means of "crowd-sourcing" sensory data collection tasks to a human population. Humans can act as sensor carriers (e.g., carrying GPS devices that share location data), sensor operators (e.g., taking pictures with smart phones), or as sensors themselves (e.g., sharing their observations on Twitter). The proliferation of sensors in the possession of the average individual, together with the popularity of social networks that allow massive information dissemination, heralds an era of social sensing that brings about new research challenges and opportunities in this emerging field.
