Invited Talk Michael Szell at PhyMo22

March 11 @ 09:30 - 10:00

Towards a human-centric urban data science Making our cities better and sustainable is key to solving the climate and urban transport crises. To this end, urban data science offers new tools to quantify societal problems in cities and to propose human-centric solutions to policy makers. In this talk I outline our recent and ongoing efforts towards that end, focusing on urban transport and vulnerable road users. I discuss inequalities between transport modes through mobility space and collision threat distributions, and…

NERDS Seminar: Giulia Reggiani

March 23 @ 12:30 - 13:30

Understanding bikeability of urban networks Giulia Reggiani, Delft University of Technology About the author: Giulia Reggiani is ending her PhD in the department of Transport and Planning, Delft University of Technology. Her research in the last 4 years focused on structural properties of bicycle networks worldwide and on data driven methods for assessing bikeability. Her current interests lie in the broad domains of smart mobility, data analysis, and sustainability. About the presentation: Having a bicycle network that is fully separated from…

Talk: Luca Maria Aiello at ANET Lab Seminar Series

April 1 @ 10:00 - 11:00

Abstract Social relationships are the key determinant of crucial societal outcomes, including diffusion of innovation, productivity, happiness, and life expectancy. To better attain such outcomes at scale, it is therefore paramount to have technologies that can effectively capture the type of social relationships from digital data. NLP researchers have tried to do so from conversational text but mostly focusing on sentiment or topic mining, techniques that fall short on either conciseness or exhaustiveness. We propose a theoretical model of 10…

Invited Talk Anastassia Vybornova at Citizens Collective (CUSP, TU Delft)

May 18 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Will Cycling Save Our Cities? A Story of Love and Panic   The climate crisis is putting our future in danger. Cycling is often described as the go-to “green bullet” to make transportation in cities more sustainable and to reduce our exacerbated fossil fuel consumption. But can we still win the global war on cars, or are our beloved cities (and with them, their inhabitants) doomed anyways? I will share a personal account of my journey into cycling research, which…

Machine learning for cohort-based high-resolution spatial population projections Marina Georgati, Aalborg University CPH Abstract Cities expand rapidly with international migration significantly contributing to urban growth and urban population change. However, cities miss out on a great opportunity of reclaiming valuable knowledge on future population distribution due to the lack of established tools and methodologies to project where it is more likely for people of specific socio-demographic groups to set up home. The present work suggests that spatially explicit projections can…

Revealing the determinants of gender inequality in urban cycling with large-scale data by Rossano Schifanella, Associate Professor in Computer Science at the University of Turin. Abstract Cycling is an outdoor activity with massive health benefits and an effective solution for sustainable urban transport. Despite these benefits and the recent rising popularity of cycling, most countries still have a negligible uptake. This uptake is especially low for women: there is a largely unexplained, persistent gender gap in cycling. To understand the determinants of…

Keynote talk Michael Szell at Alan Turing Institute

June 15 @ 11:20 - 12:05

Establishing a quantitative science of bicycle networks Making transportation in cities sustainable is one major key to solving the climate, urban livability, and urban transport crises. To this end, urban data science offers new tools to quantify societal problems in cities and to guide policy makers with human-centric solutions. In this talk I outline our recent and ongoing efforts towards that end, focusing on vulnerable road users and active travel, in particular towards establishing a data-driven science of bicycle networks.…
