I’m Simo.

I’m an Adjunct Professor of Social Computing at the Center for Ubiquitous Computing (Oulu, Finland).

I’m interested in data; for crowd-powered things, to fuel algorithms (ML/AI), and for novel applied health-tech. Find some examples of my recent academic work and popular media articles below, or check out all publications.
