The Open Dynamic Interaction Network (ODIN) is a very cost-effective mobile platform for social and behavioral research. ODIN embraces a new paradigm for scientific exploration, moving beyond simple “surveying” and “social network analysis” of populations, by enabling the collection and analysis of continuous and contextualized individual and interpersonal data. Using ODIN, social science can extend beyond static snapshots of individual/social life, yielding new insights through the analysis of high dimensional data streams collected from study participants over long timescales. ODIN was designed by interdisciplinary teams as part of National Science Foundation project 1338485 and its development is supported by National Institutes of Health grant R01 GM118427.
