Anmol Madan (Advisor: A. Pentland)


Today's mobile phones are essentially off-the-shelf, mass-market wearable computers. In this paper, we describe mobile social software that uses location, proximity and tone of voice to create a sophisticated understanding of people's social lives, by mining their face-to-face and phone interactions. We describe several applications of our system – automatic characterization of social and workplace interactions, a courtesy reminder for phone conversations, and a personal trainer for dating encounters.
