Real-time Event Detection, Prediction, and Visualization for Emergency Response (2014–2018)

Abstract:
This project proposes novel end-to-end methods for real-time recognition and prediction of real-world events, leading to timely response to emergencies such as disease outbreaks and natural disasters, as well as prevention of crime, security breaches and the like. The proposed research will develop new techniques to quickly detect and predict events by incorporating adaptive learning and probabilistic models, and address fusion and scalability factors to handle vast collections of heterogeneous data. An event surveillance system prototype will be developed to incorporate the findings of the research with tools to visualize and describe events.
