The science portal Videnskab.dk has an article about a recent master’s thesis project carried out at DTU Informatics by Esben von Buchwald. The thesis deals with the issue of easily accessing relevant information or services on your mobile phone. A prototype application using context-information based on GPS and Compass sensors, and detection of gestures was developed, enabling easy browsing of information about nearby restaurants, cinema, and train schedules, simply by pointing at them with your mobile phone.
I’m presenting our paper on Using mobile phone contextual information to facilitate managing image collections at the Personal Information Management: PIM 2009. Personal information intersections: What happens when PIM spaces overlap? It’s a ASIS&T 2009 Workshop, November 7-8, 2009, Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The Mobile Context Toolbox (paper and poster/demo) was presented at the 4th European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context (EuroSSC2009), September 16-18 2009 at the Centre for Communication Systems Research, The University of Surrey, Guildford, UK.
