 +======TITLE:​ “Global-Scale Mobile Computing”====== 
 +==SPEAKER: John P. Shen, Nokia Fellow & CMU-ECE Adjunct Professor== 
 +In 2013 the total number of mobile phone subscriptions worldwide surpassed the total population of our planet. “This is totally unprecedented in the human history of technology. No technology ever, has even come close. Not television sets, not PCs, not radios, not cars, not motorcycles,​ not even bicycles; not credit cards, not even bank accounts; not books in print, not newspaper circulations;​ not the reach of electricity or landline telephones or even running water; not wristwatches,​ not toothbrushes,​ not even pens and pencils… have been as widely used as mobile is today.” [Tomi Ahonen] This year the total number of smartphones worldwide will exceed the total number of PCs, of any kind, in the world. These mobile devices are mobile computers; they also serve as rich sensing platforms on the global scale. This talk will highlight some of the research work done in Nokia’s North America Lab on “Mobile Sensing and Social Services” and “Visual Computing and Mixed Reality,” and suggest some interesting directions for future research in the areas of “Human Behavior Modelling and Understanding” and “Global-Scale Mobile and Swarm Computing.”
