Dominic Jonak Peter Steenkiste Pervasive Computing: Supporting Group Activities

Collaborative services need to balance user privacy and system effectiveness. I will explore the tension between these conflicting goals in the context of a group scheduler. My system will allow useful information (mutually enjoyed activities) to be extracted while revealing little personal information (preferences for all activities and people). Furthermore I will investigate possible attacks allowing reconstruction of sensitive data as well as potential countermeasures.
