Department Events

The Department runs a variety of seminars, workshops and colloquia, here are some of the ones that may be of interest to visitors and guests.

For more information about Departmental Seminars, please contact the current organizer, Sara Kalvala. You are welcome to sign up to the seminar mailing list.

For directions to the Department, please see the map of campus and directions. (Be reminded that the University of Warwick is not, surprisingly, located in the town of Warwick.)

Title: Trajectory Network Mining

Abstract: Trajectory data mining has been of increasing research
interest due to an abundance of modern tracking devices and a number
of real-world applications. Likewise, large-scale network mining has
attracted significant attention as it helps to reveal underlying
dynamics of networks. In our research, we are interested in mining and
analysis of large-scale trajectory networks - networks where the nodes
are moving objects (cars, pedestrians, etc.) and the edges represent
contacts between objects as defined by a proximity threshold. In the
first part of the talk, I will discuss the problem of mining group
patterns in trajectories of pedestrians coming from motion video
analysis. We are interested in interactive analysis and exploration of
group dynamics, including various semantics of group gathering and
dispersion. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss methods for
evaluating the importance of moving objects (nodes) in a trajectory
network. To address these questions we devise fast and accurate
methods for concurrent evaluation of dynamic network metrics including
node degree, triangle membership and connected components for each
moving object, over time. If time allows, I will also discuss our
recent work on network representation learning. Lately, these methods
have been shown to perform very well on static networks. However, in
real-world, networks are continuously evolving. I will discuss a
random-walk based method for effectively learning representations of
evolving networks.
