Sensing and Modeling Human Networks
by Jeremy at 3:08 pm EST, Feb 7, 2004

Knowledge of how groups of people interact is important ... Existing studies have either been restricted to online communities or have been forced to rely on questionnaires, surveys, ...

The aim of this thesis is to automatically model face-to-face interactions within a community. The "sociometer," a specially designed wearable sensor package, was built to address this problem.

This thesis develops a computational framework for learning the interaction structure and dynamics automatically from the sociometer data.

The full text of the thesis is available; follow the "PDF" link at the bottom. While only 100 pages long, the file itself is rather large.

A Google search for "sociometer" offers a variety of short conference papers on the topic.
