Processing geolocation location data for smart mobility

    Type: Bachelor UROP
    Status: Available

    Human mobility modeling is widely recognized as being key to providing new services and solutions in many application domains. For example, tracking viral diseases dynamics (e.g., the COVID-19 pandemics), tracking changes in behavior which can be used to recognize impending mental health episodes, deliver more effective advertising and retail experiences, enhance security and shape the provision of urban services, etc.

    In this project, you will: (i) research the availability of labeled datasets for human mobility modeling (e.g., [1][2]); (ii) based on the research, you will select and pre-process several datasets (e.g., [1][2]); (iii) the pre-processed datasets will be visualized (e.g., using [6]) and a descriptive statistics will be presented; (iv) finally, the datasets will be compared and possible machine-learning tasks will be proposed for future work.
