Bachelor/Master Project Algorithmics: Personal Networks on Mobile Devices (Summer 2013)

+++ News +++

Monday 15 July 2013,
13:30-15:00 h (s.t.)  and
17:00-18:30 h (s.t.)
in room M 801

General: Topically related algorithms are studied, implemented, evaluated, or developed further. Algorithms are selected from ongoing research in the algo group. This course can also be used as preparatory for a subsequent bachelor or master thesis.

Topic of this project is the collection, analysis, and visualization of personal-network data on mobile devices. The personal network of a user (ego) comprises all persons that are known to ego (alteri) as well as all ego-alter and alter-alter ties. These ties range from cognitive relations such as friendship or like/dislike over to behavioral interaction events such as sending emails. Participants design and implement different components of a software for the collection, analysis, and visualization of personal networks on mobile devices. The implementation should be done for the android OS.

Prerequisites: Knowledge about algorithms and datastructures. Good programming skills in java or in a comparable language.

Responsible: Jürgen Lerner
