Situation Awareness from Massive Data

Research

I have worked with many research groups within our faculty, I find it excellent that there is always somebody to ask if I need new knowledge about any computer science related issue, and any other matter I might add. My current research unit is in the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, find our pages: Center for Ubiquitous Computing. We have three professors who have a slightly different touch to Ubicomp: Urban , Human, and Interaction. Amongst other things, we develop novel user interfaces, 3D models, crowsourcing interfaces and software architectures that utilize information from the situation. Enabling this situation awareness is my job and I utilize different kinds of sensor networks that produce data for this. As with Big Data, there are the three V's (also important in our work as we work with big data), we have the three R's; We Reason, Rationalize and Recommend. I design data collection, participate in sensor installations, collect and store data, clean the data and draw conclusion from selected features utilizing machine learning and data fusion methodologies.
