I recently did a lot of research regarding location based services. Especially the intelligent part of it excites me the most. I found a very interesting part of it. Namely the intelligent advice. Ill explain what i mean with a simple example like colleague explained to me:
Toni, a few weeks back, liked restaurant "A".. the device looks for other users that also liked restaurant "A".. and search for restaurants that these users are recommending on Toni's current geographical location.. (these other users could be subscribers to the same network provider or social-networking websites for example).
There are so many ways in order to use this technology, if it works. I mean think of it: I dont like visiting landmarks... I prefer getting to know a city by the view of a local, which would indicate --> doesnt like to visit all churches in town, doesnt want to go in the typical restaurant "tourist trap", so my phone recommends me cool places where others that dont like these either, have been to (and liked em).
Are there any people around here, who have done some programming or have had some ideas to come around with this topic? Or does anyone here know some that might be able to help me? Are there some communities out there, which center around such topics?
