InterDigital and Applied Communication Sciences Engineers Awarded Best Papers at EMERGING 2016

In October 2016, the International Academy, Research and Industry Association (IARIA) hosted its eighth International Conference on Emerging Networks and Intelligence, and last month awarded five “Best Papers” from the event’s call for papers including a submission from an InterDigital engineer and her collaborators.  

IARIA’s International Conference on Emerging Networks and Intelligence, EMERGING 2016, serves as a platform to present and evaluate the advances in emerging solutions for next-generation architectures, devices, and communications protocols. The conference solicits technical papers from academic, research, and industrial contributors that focus on topic areas such as computing trends, mobility and ubiquity, intelligent services, applications and services, semantics and adaptation, among others.   

InterDigital’s Shoshana Loeb along with Applied Communication Sciences’ Ben Falchuk, Chris Mesterharm, and Euthimious Panagos, submitted a research paper titled, “Machine Learning Techniques for Mobile Application Event Analysis,” which was recognized as one of the five top papers.  The “Best Papers” award was based on review of the original submission, the camera-ready version, as well as the presentation during the conference.  

The paper explains how JumpStart, a real-time event analytics service, utilizes machine learning techniques to empower developers and businesses to both identify users exhibiting similar behavior and discover user interaction patterns that are strongly correlated with specific activities. The discovered patterns can then be used to enable contextual real-time feedback through JumpStart’s complex event pattern matching.
