SocioPatterns at the 25C3 conference

Published: December 29, 2008


On December 26-30th we deployed a new SocioPatterns experiment at the 25th Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin (25C3). This is the first large-scale deployment of our platform for sensing social interactions. We added to the visualization interface several ways of focusing on particular subsets of the real-time and cumulative contact networks. In line with the conference’s action line “nothing to hide”, we made the live contact network available on the web.

We thank the following persons for their work and support: Milosch Meriac, Brita Meriac, and aestetix, Janette Lehmann, Aurora Mazzone, Marco Perosa, Eric Preston, Tomasz Rybak. Our work at 25C3 was carried out in the context of a broader tracking event by the OpenBeacon project and the OpenAMD project, with hardware and infrastructure provided by Bitmanufaktur. We also thank the organizers of 25C3 for hosting our work at such a stimulating event!

Visualizations, movies and results from the data collected at 25C3 will be posted to this blog in the next few weeks.
