Computing is becoming increasingly embedded in our everyday lives: mobile devices are growing smaller yet more powerful, large displays are getting cheaper, and our physical environments are turning intelligent and are integrating an increasing number of digital processors. Meanwhile, data is everywhere, and people need to leverage all of this digital infrastructure to turn it into actionable information about their hobbies, health, and personal interest. Ubiquitous analytics—or ubilytics—is a new paradigm for interacting with data that is staking out a new digital future of ever-present, always-on computing; one that can support manipulating, thinking about, and analyzing data anytime, anywhere.

The Ubilytics project is funded from February 2013 to January 2018 by a U.S. National Science Foundation CAREER grant, award #1253863 and #1539534 (moved to UMD).
