Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors identify mobile social networks as an important new direction of research in mobile computing, and show how an expanded definition of mobile social networks that includes sensor networks can enable exciting new context-aware applications, such as context-aware video screens, music jukeboxes, and mobile health applications. The authors offer SocialFusion as a system capable of systematically integrating such diverse mobile, social, and sensing input streams and effectuating the appropriate context-aware output action. They explain some of the major challenges that SocialFusion must overcome.
