Extracting Social and Community Intelligence from Digital Footprints: An Emerging Research Area
As a result of the recent explosion of sensor-equipped mobile phone market, the phenomenal growth of Internet and social network users, and the large deployment of sensor network in public facilities, private buildings and outdoor environments, the “digital footprints” left by people while interacting with cyber-physical spaces are accumulating with an unprecedented breadth, depth and scale.

It is believed that the SCI technology has the potential to revolutionize the field of context-aware computing. The aim of this position paper is to identify this emerging research area, present the research background and some references to the relevant research fields, define the general system fra...
