An Integrated Approach to Human-in-the-Loop Systems and Online Social Sensing



As the number of smart devices that surround us
increases, so do the possibilities of leveraging them to create
intelligent, socially-aware systems. However, apart from e-health
systems, few applications consider humans as active system players.
In fact, most applications/systems have the sole objective of providing
some service to humans without considering their intents, actions or
emotions. In this respect, they can be looked at as open loop, rather
than integrating humans in a feedback loop, with potential to react
to and change the environment. Systems that do consider human
feedback are called Human-in-the-Loop Cyber-Physical-Systems
(HiTLCPS). In this paper we propose an approach that implements
the HITLCPS concept. The developed platform, called ISABELA,
explores both online social networks (OSN) data as well as a variety
of other data, such as environmental data and personal mobile
devices data, thus combining IoT, social sensors and mobile sensing.
In addition to presenting the system architecture, the paper provides
results obtained during field trials.
