Privacy through uncertainty in location-based services


Merrill, Shawn; Basalp, Nilgun; Biskup, Joachim; Buchmann, Erik; Clifton, Chris; Kuijpers, Bart; Othman, Walied; Savas, Erkay (2013). Privacy through uncertainty in location-based services. In: IEEE 14th International Conference on Mobile Data Management, Milan, Italy, 3 June 2013 - 6 June 2013, 67-72.

Abstract

Location-Based Services (LBS) are becoming more prevalent. While there are many benefits, there are also real privacy risks. People are unwilling to give up the benefits - but can we reduce privacy risks without giving up on LBS entirely? This paper explores the possibility of introducing uncertainty into location information when using an LBS, so as to reduce privacy risk while maintaining good quality of service. This paper also explores the current uses of uncertainty information in a selection of mobile applications.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
