PhD Grants - 2012

Six PhDgrants coadvised by UniTN, FBK and Telecom Italia with title:

Human behavior understanding from mobile phones data and web usage patterns

A deep understanding of peoples’ behavior, individually or by group, is a key factor for next generation services as well as for the creation of smart cities environment with a more efficient transportation network, a better energy management, etc.: both of them have a sustainable economic development and a high quality of life as the final goal. On one hand, the modern (smart) mobile devices allow for a very wide variety of actions (communication, browsing, application execution) and in addition to standard data related to phoning, include many different sources of information coming from sensors (e.g. GPS position, accelerometer data, etc.) that let a close view over individuals, on the other hand the pervasive ICT technologies enable the collection of big data from multiple source (first of all mobile phone network data but also transportation data, energy consumption data, etc.) of extraordinary value because analyzing them we can understand the insight of a city or a territory as never before. The aim of these grants is then to address, from a technological point of view, the challenges that the exploitation of these data for a better understanding of human behavior carries with.
