MoBiSoc Research Lab
The Mobile Bio-Social Research Lab at Cardiff University is a collection of researchers interested in topics related to mobile and social computing, human behaviour, networks and sociality. We're focused on the impact of functional developments of mobile devices, looking primarily at the smartphone-user relationship.
After a brief hiatus over winter, MoBiSoc has returned. Fewer cakes and a more focused approach, but the same mobile-bio-social computing based discussions and eventsRead on...

The Recognition project looked for innovative ways to autonomously provide and manage content relevant to the individual user. The project was inspired by the cognitive processes that humans exhibit for self-awareness. Examples incude the heuristics and cues that we subconsciously use everyday for rapid decision making and negotiating conflicting signals in physical and social situations.Read on...
