Keynote: Using Vehicular Data to Understand Urban Mobility & Events

Dr. Archan Misra, Singapore Management University, Singapore, read bio

Cities are increasingly providing public access to a variety of transportation-related "big data", such as the real-time location of taxis, crowdedness level of buses and arrival times of trains. In this talk, Archan will introduce the concept of socio-physical analytics, which fuses such transportation-related data across multiple modalities (such as buses, taxis and parking garages) with social media sensing to identify and characterize urban micro-events. Archan will describe two distinct families of event detection, both of which aid the goal of improved understanding and optimizing of personal urban mobility. One combines such transportation data with sensor data from personal mobile devices (of a fraction of commuters) to obtain novel insights into commuting experiences (e.g., the waiting time at taxi stands). The other combines multi-modal transportation data (e.g., occupancy levels of buses, dropoff and pickup rates of taxis) with social media data (e.g., Twitter & Foursquare) to both identify and localize urban micro-events.
