What is StoneSoup?
Public displays are ubiquitous in our everyday life. From libraries to airports, these displays serve many different social and temporal contexts. Currently, they are mainly used by the host organizations to inform people about news, events and other happening. For instance, libraries use these displays to inform people about latest events and expositions. This, however, is a very limited use of a physically located display. We believe that public displays can not only inform people about the news and events but also help in building a stronger community and lead to efficient knowledge sharing between people.
We propose StoneSoup - a community driven proactive display system that allows users to personalize the content for the display with the goal of increasing interaction and awareness in collocated communities.
