How can network sensing projects effectively and conscientiously collect personal data? CENS has undertaken a social and policy analysis of privacy as it relates to urban sensing research, which focuses on the use of everyday mobile devices as sensors for a variety of human-in-the-loop sensing scenarios. Our exploration will focus on the social balance between sharing and privacy in personal data sensing, its relationship to effective inference and observation, and its role in individual and group identity formation.
