KNOWledge Discovery from Mobility and Transportation Systems
Description:

The recent technological advances on telecommunications create a new reality on mobility sensing. Nowadays, we live in an era where ubiquitous digital devices are able to broadcast rich information about human mobility in real-time and at a high rate. Such fact exponentially increased the availability of large-scale mobility data which has been popularized in the media as the new currency, fueling the future vision of our smart cities that will transform our lives. The reality is that we just began to recognize significant research challenges across a spectrum of topics.

The increasing availability of Big Data, able to capture diverse collective phenomena, provides an unprecedented opportunity to explore the patterns underlying success. From the strategies followed by successful sportsmen to the emergence of runaway videos on YouTube, from popularity in social media to rising starts in the scientific enterprise, from widespread technologies to groundbreaking innovations, there is wealth of data that can be explored to answer common questions: How can we measure performance? What are the common patterns of success?

Why Open Access? A researcher's perspective

Start:
2015/10/23 14:30 Europe/Rome
End:
2015/10/23 16:30 Europe/Rome
Speaker:
Prof. Jean-Claude Guédon, Université de Montréal, Montréal, Canada
Location:
Aula A-27, ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy
Description:

Open Access is a consequence of digitization; it began its “public life” after the publication of the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) in 2002. In the last dozen of years, it has moved through the usual phases of movements that do not go away: at first, it was ignored; then it was laughed at; later on it was fought and resisted.

In 2015, we are clearly in the last phase, and perhaps even beyond: even large commercial publishers are finding ways to compose with Open Access. The issue is no longer whether Open Access will survive, but rather in what form will it evolve?

DyNo
Description:

In the last years we witnessed to a shift from static network analysis to a dynamic networks analysis, i.e., the study of networks whose structure change over time. As time goes by, all the perturbations which occur on the network topology due to the rise and fall of nodes and edges have repercussions on the network phenomena we are used to observe. As an example, evolution over time of social interactions in a network can play an important role in the diffusion of an infectious disease.

In this presentation we will focus on the ongoing work in exploration and analysis of data from ocean vessel movements, using the Automatic Identification System (AIS) data. We will discuss some of the challenges and benefits related to the large-scale exploration and analysis of AIS data. We will look at detection of anomalous trajectories of ships in mid-ocean and in port vicinity, and at the ecologically-oriented detection and analysis of data related to fishing activities.
