Event Details

This talk focuses on opportunities for designing smarter urban services based on data analytics. It presents some recent developments tailored for processing geo-referenced streams from city sensing infrastructures and individual-level citizen-generated data to produce a semantically rich representation of urban dynamics in terms of mobility flows, communication and social interaction patterns. Along with interpretable decompositions of interaction flows it provides a probabilistic decision support framework to design recommender systems for urban services and evaluate novel bottom-up control policies.


Alexei received a Ph.D. in computer science from EPFL, Switzerland, following his research in machine learning methods and computer vision that he carried out at IDIAP Research Institute in Martigny, Switzerland. He then worked at the Institute of Geomatics and Analysis of Risk (IGAR), University of Lausanne.

His group is developing i2maps: a modular software framework for knowledge extraction from spatio-temporal data streams, and working towards the CityScale project to demonstrate this research.


Free and open to the public, the Research Exchange Seminar Series is a weekly roundtable of presentations and discussions that highlight ways to frame and tackle societal-scale research issues in health care, energy, infrastructure, data & democracy and many other topics.

We require registration if you would like to reserve a free lunch for this seminar. You're welcome to walk-in to attend the seminar as registration is not necessary, but lunch will not be provided for guests without a ticket. Feel free to bring your own lunch (coffee and soda are not allowed in the auditorium).
