SmartSociety Science Café: Interview with Vincenzo Maltese

There is a new video on our new Youtube channel: SmartSocietyFP7! In the second instalment of the SmartSociety Science Café, Daniele Miorandi interviews Dr. Vincenzo Maltese from the University of Trento.

Dr. Maltese, the Project Manager of SmartSociety, starts with a description of our project and goals, while giving a personal view on the most interesting aspects in this. When asked for an example, he points us to the everyday use of mobile devices, particularly when used to transmit location and activity data, as well as social networking. The interview ends with a brief discussion on the impact SmartSociety is expected to have in our lives, with particular mention to the need for raising people’s awareness on issues such as effective use, safety and privacy.
