Computing has become social. Many computational
systems and environments involve some element of user
control; increasingly that user control is socially oriented,
where digital traces and the crowd allow better interaction.
My research focuses on social computing (including
crowdsourcing) and other collaborative technologies)
and pervasive (ubiquitous) computing. My group is
currently working on topics such as health; ways to find
people; new collaborative ways for reusing informal
information; user control for pervasive devices, especially
using other people’s digital traces.|
