Crowdsourced Trace Similarity with Smartphones
By Demetrios Zeinalipour-Yazti, Christos Laoudias, Constandinos Costa, Michail Vlachos, Maria I. Andreou, and Dimitrios Gunopulos
Smartphones are nowadays equipped with a number of sensors, such as WiFi, GPS, accelerometers, etc. This capability allows smartphone users to easily engage in crowdsourced computing services, which contribute to the solution of complex problems in a distributed manner. In this work, we leverage such a computing paradigm to solve efficiently the following problem: comparing a query trace Q against a crowd of traces generated and stored on distributed smartphones. Our proposed framework, coined SmartTrace+ , provides an effective solution without disclosing any part of the crowd traces to the query processor...
