4sqPersonality app released

Partners at Cardiff University have just released a mobile application based on RECOGNITION research. The 4sqPersonality app is a mobile version of the Foursquare Personality Experiment released last year.

4sqPersonality App

The app allows users to view the Foursquare venues near their current location, and to see the average personality profile of all the people who have checked in there. If they are curious enough, they can even sign in with Foursquare themselves, and take their own personality test to see how they compare.

Get it on Google Play

The app is available for Android now on Google Play, and an iOS version should be available very soon.

The workshop, titled “Collective Social Awareness and Relevance”, or CSAR, presented papers from project partners alongside other relevant work from outside the project. The workshop was well attended, and included plenty of discussion around topics relevant to the RECOGNITION project.

RECOGNITION workshop: “From Cognitive Activity to Artificial Self-Awareness”

The RECOGNITION project recently held a very successful public workshop in Florence, Italy, where work from the RECOGNITION project was presented to an audience of domain experts, academics and members of the public.

Website back online

After a server error a few weeks ago we are finally back online! Unfortunately a number of blog posts from the first two years of the project have been lost, but we hope to possibly restore these soon.

Over the next few weeks we’ll start restoring more of the project description and content to the website so stay tuned!

Presentation at MOSN 2011

Work relevant to the Recognition project is being presented this week at MOSN 2011 – The First NSS Workshop on Mobile and Online Social Networks, a workshop located with the 5th International Conference on Network and System Security in Milan, Italy.

The paper, “Retweeting: A Study of Message-Forwarding in Twitter” is written by Will Webberley, Stuart Allen and Roget Whitaker of the School of Computer Science & Informatics at Cardiff University.

Recognition work presented at NEMO 2011

Work from the Recognition project is this week being presented at the “Finding Patterns of Human Behaviors in NEtwork and MObility Data” (NEMO) workshop at ECMLPKDD 2011 in Athens, Greece.

The paper, entitled “Checking out checking in: observations on foursquare usage patterns was completed by Martin Chorley, Gualtiero Colombo, Matthew Williams, Stuart Allen and Roger Whitaker of the School of Computer Science & Informatics at Cardiff University.
