PERIOD: FEBRUARY prof. Shlomo Bekhor - Israel Institute of Technology This course presents different methods to analyse big data from different sources (e. g. cellular phones and GPS), which are becoming essential in trasport planning and management. The interdisciplinary course is addressed to provide a sound knowledge regarding different methods to analyse big data from different sources (e. g. cellular phones and GPS), which are becoming essential in transport planning and management. Big data provides new ways of gathering novel information from passenger and vehicle movements and allows for a shift from passive approaches to active crowdsourcing with innovative transport solutions. This course presents different methods to analyse big data from different sources (e. g. cellular phones and GPS), which are becoming essential in transport planning and management.

The course will be articulated in two parts: the first related to data science and, the second, focused on transport applications. The introductory session will explain to the students the topic of the course, the objective and the structure, followed by introduction to Big Data and Machine Learning. Then, clustering methods and classification methods will be presented, followed by the main principles of neural networks. Then, the diverse data collection methods in transport sector will be presented, distinguishing between passive and active travel data collection. Finally, the household surveys will be explained to compare their potential with that of the passive and active data collection. After having given the sufficient background on the topic, two applications, related to the route choice model and origin-destination matrix construction, will be presented. The course will be held by an outstanding scholar with high international reputation in the above field. The description of the above sessions follows. Scientific Coordinator: Prof. Cristina Pronello Lecturer: Prof. Shlomo Bekhor (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology)
