The proliferation of smart sensors, small satellites, connected cars, and social media have produced a wave of geo-referenced data about human activity. At the same time, the evolution of big data technology and advancements in machine learning have expanded our ability to derive valuable insights about how people interact with each other and their environment. Using satellite collected maritime data from exactEarth, ground transportation data from GPS connected cars and trucks, and exercise data from mobile apps, CCRi CTO Anthony Fox will describe how machine learning techniques can reveal patterns in a broad range of activities: for example, to derive vessel risk scores for insurance analytics, to visualize and assess the impact of major weather events on supply chains, and to discover the best routes for group rides.
