Title: Intelligent Transportation Systems with Infrastructure and Vehicle Sensors
Professor Xindong Wu,
Department of Computer Science,
University of Vermont, USA.
This talk will discuss the great opportunities provided by the rich real-time and historical data collected by both infrastructure sensors (such as in-road reflectors) and vehicle sensors in intelligent transportation systems. With the data from infrastructure sensors, traffic prediction can reduce travel delays by facilitating better utilization of available traffic capacity. With the data from vehicle sensors, a driver's driving habit can be modeled, the driver can be identified from the sensor data collected during driving, and personalized driving advice may be provided.
Biography: Xindong Wu is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Vermont (USA), a Yangtze River Scholar in the School of Computer Science and Information Engineering at the Hefei University of Technology (China), and a Fellow of the IEEE and the AAAS. He holds a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, Britain. His research interests include data mining, knowledge-based systems, and Web information exploration. He has published over 280 refereed papers in these areas in various journals and conferences, including IEEE TPAMI, TKDE, ACM TOIS, DMKD, KAIS, IJCAI, AAAI, ICML, KDD, ICDM, and WWW, as well as 33 books and conference proceedings. His research has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, as well as industrial companies including Microsoft Research, U.S. West Advanced Technologies and Empact Solutions.
Dr. Wu is the founder and current Steering Committee Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM), the founder and current Editor-in-Chief of Knowledge and Information Systems (KAIS, by Springer), the Founding Chair (2002-2006) of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), and a Series Editor of the Springer Book Series on Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing (AI&KP). He was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE, by the IEEE Computer Society) between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2008. He served as Program Committee Chair/Co-Chair for ICDM '03 (the 2003 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining), KDD-07 (the 13th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining), and CIKM 2010 (the 19th ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management).
Professor Wu is the 2004 ACM SIGKDD Service Award winner, the 2006 IEEE ICDM Outstanding Service Award winner, and a 2012 IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award recipient "for pioneering contributions to data mining and applications". He won the Best Paper Award from the 2005 and 2011 IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI 2005 & 2007) and the 2012 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2012). He has been an invited/keynote speaker at over 30 international conferences including IEEE GrC 2012, IEEE ICDM 2010, PAKDD 2007, IEEE EDOC 2006, IEEE ICTAI 2004, IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-2004/IAT-2004, SEKE 2002, and PADD 1997.
