During the month of August researchers Alessandra Raffaetá and Marta Simeoni from UNIVE have been seconded to Dalhousie University in Halifax Canada. During the secondment UNIVE researchers worked with with Dr. Jay Kumar, post-PhD fellow at the Institute for Big Data Analytics. The main goal was to improve the results already obtained for the fishing effort forecast in the Northern Adriatic Sea. The area of the Northern Adriatic Sea is known to be intensively fished and the fishing effort is a key indicator for monitoring the fishing pressure on an area of interest over time. Hence, accurate fishing effort forecast could help in monitoring the fishing pressure at the basin level and in preventing overexploitation.
In July and August 2022 four secondments took place at PUC in Rio de Janeiro: three secondment from CNR - Beatrice Rapisarda, Chiara Renso and Raffaele Perego - and one from UNIVE - Andrea Marin. We have discussed with Prof. Casanova hosting us tat the wonderful forest of the PUC premises about our current activities and specifically on RDF data and semantic enrichment.
Congratulations to our secondee Tarlis Tortelli Portela from UFSC and PhD student at UFSC and University of Pisa for winning the best demo runner up at the International Conference on Mobile Data Management 2022!! The tool presented is a library to support the data mining of multiple aspects trajectories and specifically the movelets. This works has been a joint collaboration between UFSC, CNR and University of Pisa!
During the month of April the CNR secondee Francesco Lettich visited our partner Jose de Macedo at the Federal University of Ceará in Brazil for executing a one month secondment. The research work of Francesco focussed on WP4 and specifically on external sensor trajectories (ESTs), i.e. sparse trajectories collected through the observations of a sensor network deployed within some urban area. One particular issue is the need to enrich ESTs with further features, as this has the potential to substantially improve the accuracy of predictive techniques. In this context the CNR staff can offer its expertise in the semantic enrichment domain, with the integration of existing techniques or the introduction of novel ones.
On May 13th 2022 we held the Second MASTER workshop. The event has been organised by our partner Ca' Foscari University of Venice by Alessandra Raffaetà in the room Aula Magna Silvio Trentin at Ca’ Dolfin, in the historical centre of Venice. The workshop program is available at Second MASTER Workshop. The title of the workshop was “MASTER meets Mobility Industries” where the objective was to find links with the industrial world of mobility. Companies ACTV Venice, BusForFun and Mindicity kindly accepted to give a presentation, introduce their companies, the data they manage, and the analysis problems they are facing. In addition, we invited two European projects related to mobility data, MOBIDATALAB (Thierry Chevalier from AKKA, France) and VesselAI (Spiros Mouzakitis from NTUA, Greece). MASTER Partners – Chiara Renso from CNR, Alessandra Raffaetà and Giulia Rovinelli from…
Joint work from University of Venice Ca' Foscari in Venice and Dalhousie University in Halifax has just been published by Geoinformtica Journal. The paper has title "From multiple aspect trajectories to predictive analysis: a case study on fishing vessels in the Northern Adriatic sea" and presents an approach to modelling, storage and analysis of multiple aspects trajectories in the maritime domain. Specifically the work focuses on the prediction of Catch per Unit Effort. This works integrates fishing ships trajectories derived from AIS data, environmental data and catch data for spatio-temporal prediction of CPUE – a challenging task.
