"What we know from where you go"
Abstract: We can learn a lot about people from the places they go. With more smartphones comes more location data that researchers have analyzed to derive interesting insights into human behavior. This talk will examine some of this research, starting with fundamental models of human mobility, including whether or not models of animal movement are applicable to people. We will look at how peoples’ movements throughout the day give clues about which types of places they are visiting, such as their home, work, and school. These movements also give insights into how far people are willing to travel to different types of places and the routes they prefer. Other work has shown how to go from recorded location data to surprisingly accurate predictions of where people will travel in the future, both over the next several minutes as well as the next several weeks. We will show how what we learn from mobility patterns can be applied to automated personal assistants, local search, and routing.

Biography: John Krumm graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1993 with a PhD in robotics and a thesis on texture analysis in images. He worked at the Robotics Center of Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the next four years. His main projects there were computer vision for object recognition for use in robots and vehicles. He has been at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington, USA since 1997, and is currently a principal researcher. He concentrates on location tracking of people and devices and on methods to use location data to benefit the user. He holds 51 U.S. patents. He was a PC chair for UbiComp 2007, ACM SIGSPATIAL 2013, and ACM SIGSPATIAL 2014. He served on the editorial board of IEEE Pervasive Computing Magazine and for three years as a coeditor in chief for the Journal of Location Based Services.
