Whereas traditional data sources and census fail in capturing actual and up-to- date behaviors, Big Data integrate the missing knowledge providing useful and hidden information to analysts and decision makers...

  3. MyWay, a prediction system which exploits the individual systematic behaviors modeled by mobility profiles to predict human movements. The idea behind MyWay is the possibility for each user to use its own Mobility Profile to predict his momvements, and in case it is not enough access to the collective knowledge. This additional source of information is composed by the mobility profiles of other users sharing their only their models instead of raw trajectory data revealing their detailed movement...
