Researchers at AT&T, Rutgers University, Princeton, and Loyola University have devised a way to mine cell-phone data without revealing your identity, potentially showing a route to avoiding privacy pitfalls that have so far confined global cell-phone data-mining work to research labs.
Working with billions of location data points from AT&T mobile phone calls and text-messages around Los Angeles and New York City, they’ve built a “mobility model” of the two regions that aggregates the data, produces representative “synthetic call records”—then mathematically obscures any data that could tend to identify people. The model can do things like rapidly predict how a new development or telecommuting policy would affect overall transportation, or it could be a new tool for planning at a town level where little mobility data is available, says Margaret Martonosi, a computer scientist at Princeton who is working on the model.
