Mobile Services on Wi-Fi Proximity Base

Our paper in IJESIT: Yousef Daradkeh, Tariq (Moh’d Taisir) Al Omari, and Dmitry Namiot "Mobile Services on Wi-Fi Proximity Base". International Journal of Engineering Science and Innovative Technology (IJESIT), Vol. 3, Issue 1, 2014. pp.24-35

This paper describes a new model for delivering hyper-local data for mobile subscribers. Our model uses Wi-Fi proximity as a service. According to this concept, any existing or even a specially created Wi-Fi hot spot could be used as presence sensor that can trigger access for some user-generated information snippets. In this article we present several examples for deployment: context-aware browser, integration for proximity and social streams and human dynamics models based on proximity data. As the possible use-cases, we can mention, for example, news and deals delivery in malls, news feeds for office centers and campuses, social curation, Smart City projects, personal classifieds, etc.

Twitter Data Grants

"With more than 500 million Tweets a day, Twitter has an expansive set of data from which we can glean insights and learn about a variety of topics, from health-related information such as when and where the flu may hit to global events like ringing in the new year. To date, it has been challenging for researchers outside the company who are tackling big questions to collaborate with us to access our public, historical data. Our Data Grants program aims to change that by connecting research institutions and academics with the data they need." - from Twitter
