Human Mobility Modeling based on Extensive Data from a Ride Sharing Service

This talk presents insights on modeling human mobility patterns by analyzing extensive data from a ride0saring service. We introduce a space-time graph model to capture the spatial-temporal variations of ride requests across multiple cities around the globe. Such modeing can be used in what-if scenarios related to traffic mitigation, bounds on number of riders poolable, routing, and many others.
