Innovation Ecosystem and use cases in cyber physical social systems
Nowadays we are witnessing a new revolution in mobile computing and communication. The use of mobile devices and smart interconnected objects in a wide variety of domains, is having or willing to have a significant impact on every aspect of our daily life. Social and physical networks are being brought together to deal with the variety of social challenges in a number of areas. The main advantage of envisioning such systems is the ability to process data and information from a number of sources that contribute to creation and development of knowledge to operate and control the numerous systems and sub-systems that constitute these complex interdependent systems. The rise of internet, internet of things and social networks manifest in the form of social media provide new opportunities to create more effective and efficient monitoring and delivery of services that are evidence based and in a timely manner. New technologies such as cloud computing, analysis of big data and real time data and new technology including sensor, smart devices and phones allow of delivery of services that transcend time and location.
The focus of this talk is: to give an overview of an example of Innovation Ecosystem, to make a short survey on the current state of the art, to develop a list of research issues involved by the Impact of the emerging problematic, to propose architectures and integration of applications that are pertinent to cost and outcomes effective delivery.
We will more specifically introduce example of applications of recommendation system based on social sensing and spatio-temporal context.
