We present a new model for encouraging people to get involved with monitoring and taking part in the life of cities. Cities could be smarter if IoT and people could serve as engaged and pro-active data resources (i.e., crowd sensing). This study tackles two challenges: methods by which the privacy of people who act as sensors/actuators can be guara...

Sharing and analyzing image data from ubiquitous urban cameras must enable us to understand and predict various contexts of the city. Meanwhile, since such image data always contains privacy data such as people and cars, we cannot easily share and analyze the data through the Internet for the viewpoint of privacy protection. As a result, most of ur...
