Stealing Reality: When Criminals Become Data Scientists (or Vice Versa)
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Yaniv Altshuler,Nadav Aharony,Alex Pentland,Yuval Elovici,Manuel Cebrian
Issue Date:November 2011
pp. 22-30
Stealing-reality attacks attempt to steal social network and behavioral information through data collection and inference techniques, making them more dangerous than other types of identity theft.
 
Social Area Networks: Data Networking of the People, by the People, for the People
Found in: Computational Science and Engineering, IEEE International Conference on
By Nadav Aharony, David P. Reed, Andrew Lippman
Issue Date:August 2009
pp. 1148-1155
In this position paper we explore a holistic approach for the integration of social and human-level concepts with all layers of the communication network. This integration is bidirectional - the social information can help inform and configure network-leve...
 
Friends don't lie: inferring personality traits from social network structure
Found in: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp '12)
By Alex Pentland, Bruno Lepri, Fabio Pianesi, Jacopo Staiano, Nadav Aharony, Nicu Sebe
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 321-330
In this work, we investigate the relationships between social network structure and personality; we assess the performances of different subsets of structural network features, and in particular those concerned with ego-networks, in predicting the Big-5 pe...
     
A data-rich approach for investigating social mechanisms in the wild
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th international conference on Ubiquitous computing (UbiComp '11)
By Nadav Aharony
Issue Date:September 2011
pp. 499-502
A key challenge of data-driven social science is the gathering of high quality multi-dimensional datasets. A second challenge relates to design and execution of structured experimental interventions in-situ, in a way comparable to the reliability and inten...

Comm.unity: leveraging social and physical proximity
Found in: Proceedings of the 27th international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI EA '09)
By Jamie Zigelbaum, Nadav Aharony
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 1-4
Comm.unity is a new software platform implementing a wireless, device-to-device information system that bypasses the need for any centralized servers, coordination, or administration. A key feature of this platform is the fact that it combines knowledge, a...
