Scientists recently devised smart phone app which will recommend places users can visit where they are likelier to find people with similar interests.
The system - named Jyotish after the Sanskrit term for astrology - creates a map of people's movements by tracking the wi-fi and Bluetooth connections on their phones to within around ten metres.
