This workshop is organized by Allan Hanbury, CSH Faculty.


Room: Salon




The sensor in the form of a smartphone carried by the majority of citizens has the potential to deliver insights into various aspects of society in an unprecedented way. The data can be analysed directly to characterise society, or used to accurately parametrise agent-based models. Insights can be obtained in the areas of health science, social science, disaster management and mobility, amongst others. However, the use of this data usually elicits extreme scepticism on the part of the companies owning the data and the end users of the smartphones, which usually leads to less than optimal usage of this data in countries with strict privacy regulations.


The main question to be answered by this workshop is: How can data gathered from mobile telephony be used to obtain the deepest insights into the functioning of society, while being gathered in such a way that its use is acceptable or even welcomed by members of society? The workshop will identify key application areas, technical measures to guarantee privacy and security of the data, as well as measures to increase the acceptance of the use of this data to both members of society and policy makers.
