On Wednesday 19 July, CRESS Research Fellow in Computational Social Science, Dr Jie Jiang presented a paper on behalf of CRESS at the International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS’17), at Cambridge University – on comparing sensor-generated and human-generated data obtained during a fieldwork trial for the Homesense project.

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

Homesense is a pilot study developing methods for use of digital sensors in social research. The project is a collaboration between the Centre for Research in Social Simulation (CRESS) and the 5G Innovation Centre.
