PRIMILocaRhythms - Summer term 2007
DescriptionInstant messaging systems allow their users to log in, set their availability status and to communicate with others. In this process a lot of data about the users activities and availability accumulate. In today’s systems this data stays widely unused.
As users more and more communicate using mobile devices and different computers in different networks we are able to sense, record and analyse the spatio-temporal rhythms of those nomadic users. In this project we will detect and use the patterns in this data to inform the users about the context of their communcation partners in order to improve their mutual awareness.
