Link-centric analysis of variations in mobile phone communication patterns

Abstract

Studies on large-scale mobile phone datasets have provided valuable insights into several facets of human behavior including human communication, mobility, and circadian rhythms, among others. In this talk, I will be discussing our work on inferring information about individuals and their relationships. By taking a link-centric approach, we find differences in the calling and texting patterns among pairs and find the aspects of communication that best explain these differences. We then see whether these can be used to predict information related to the demographics of the users. From these results, we gain insight into how communication patterns vary across different types of relationships.
