We are happy to host a CartoTalk by our former colleague Prof. Haosheng Huang, Professor of Cartography and GIScience at Ghent University, Belgium. He will be presenting: GeoAI for Mobility Analytics and Prediction.
Thursday, 27.04. 2023, 16:00-17:30
Seminarroom 126, Erzherzog-Johann-Platz 1/120-6, 1040 Wien
Incorporating geographic knowledge or concepts into machine learning (ML) might help to reduce the required amount of training data and improve the performance and explainability of ML models. A research theme is currently emerging in GIScience and Cartography regarding the development of geospatial artificial intelligence (GeoAI) techniques for geographic knowledge discovery. This presentation will give a summary of our recent research activities in this domain, with a focus on applications in mobility analytics and prediction.
