Title:

Modelling Moving Points: Identifying Ship Trajectories and Optimizing Photon Strategy

Abstract: 

Research of movement trajectory is undergoing a revolution due to the growing volumes of high-resolution spatio-temporal movement data and models . A key challenge now is the analysis of massive movement datasets with largely different sampling rates and accuracy such as automatic identification system (AIS) geolocation data. In particular, it is important and challenging to identify movement trajectories which have close paths and changing speeds and angles particularly in an unsupervised manner. In this talk, I will talk about our methods for modelling the challenging AIS data and optimizing photon strategy for medical images.
