The idea behind DOBBS is to get a deeper understanding how users browse the Web (e.g., how much time they spent on the Web, how long they stay on a website, how often they visit a website, how they use their browser, etc.). To contribute, DOBBS provides a Firefox browser add-on that keeps track of users' browsing behavior. DOBBS addresses privacy concerns in a straightforward fashion: no personal data are collected, and all sensitive data (i.e. URLs of visited web pages) are encrypted before being sent to the server.

The machine learning system he built, while at the University of Rochester in New York, finds out which restaurants should be avoided, in much the same way as Google Flu Trends mines search data to predict flu spread.

A pool of 3.8 million tweets sampled in New York between January and April was ranked by machine learning for relevance, with words like stomach and food being deemed the most important.

Commonly used football statistics, such as the number of goals scored or the number of shots on target, are obtained through measuring individual events performed by a single player. The problem with these stats is that they do not describe how the shots were taken or how the goals were scored, therefore not providing the reader with much insight into a team's playing style.

Dopo molto silenzio, in questi giorni (e senza tanto clamore) sono stati aperti i primi dati di SIOPE (rilasciati sotto IODL 2.0). Si tratta ancora di dati aggregati per tipologia di amministrazioni e non è possibile, quindi, verificare e confrontare i dati delle singole amministrazioni.

Mosur and Meier are working on incorporating such tasks into World of Warcraft. Gamers could choose to help sort through crowd generated images from ongoing disasters, labelling the damage levels they see to give emergency responders an idea of where they are needed - all without leaving the game. Players would receive quests to explore and tag damage in a virtual recreation of the stricken city - as well as slaying some monsters on the side.
