On Wednesday 19 July, Jie Jiang presented a paper on behalf of the HomeSense team at the International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS’17), on comparing sensor-generated and human-generated data obtained during a field trial for the HomeSense project.

The paper, “Recognising Activities at Home: Digital and Human Sensors“, proposes methods to evaluate the agreement between activities detected in sensor-generated data and activities manually reported by participants, using the ‘Levenshtein distance’.

HomeSense is a pilot study developing methods for using digital sensors in social research. The project is a collaboration between two research centres at the University of Surrey: the Centre for Research in Social Simulation and the 5G Innovation Centre.
