Mirco Musolesi’s award for foreseeing the social impacts of smart phones

The Test of Time, 10 years on

In November, at the 16th Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems, held in Shenzen, China, Dr Mirco Musolesi received the SenSys 2018 Test-of-Time Award for his co-authored 2008 paper, “Sensing meets mobile social networks: the design, implementation and evaluation of the Cenceme application”.

He received the award, "for the paper’s contribution in foreseeing that smart phones are human companions and their sensors, collectively, can be used to derive novel social behavior insights. The paper also pioneered applying machine learning across local devices and servers.”.

The ‘Test of Time’ Award recognises papers that are at least 10 years old that have had a long lasting impact on networked embedded sensing system science and engineering.
