Intelligent Prediction of Traffic Conditions via Integrated Data-Driven Crowdsourcing and Learning

Hua wang

Project Goals and Description:

This project aims to transform traffic management, emergency response, and urban planning practices via predictive analytics on rich data streams from increasingly prevalent instrumented and connected vehicles, infrastructure, and people. To realize the envisioned system, an integrated research approach is taken to tackle the following closely related research tasks: (1) integration of heterogeneous data streams using a new sparse multi-task multi-view feature fusing method; (2) prediction of traffic incidents by designing a novel high-order low-rank model; (3) teaming of connected vehicles and roadside sensor systems.

Student Preparation


The applicant student is expected to have already taken CSCI 261 and 262. It would be beneficial if the student has already taken CSCI 470.


4-8 hours/week


1. The students will learn the skills to perform data processing and management. 2. The students will be involved in my research team to perform research on machine learning and data mining. 3. The students will be involved in scientific paper writing for the results of this project. 4. The students will have a chance to work together with my collaborators in medical schools. 5. The students will gain fundamental knowledge on medical image computing, as well as how to use machine learning, as well as computational algorithms, to deal with problems in medical image computing. In a word, after the training in this project by successfully completing the assigned research tasks, the student is expected to be ready for pursuing a graduate degree in the area of machine learning, data mining, artificial intelligence, or a broader area of computer science.


1. One orientation meeting is planned at the beginning of the project, in which the undergraduate students will be introduced to the research team. The project and research culture of the faculty’s research team will be introduced to the undergraduate students in the meeting. 2. Technical seminars within the research team are planned, once per week. In every meeting, the undergraduate students will present a research paper relevant to the project and lead discussions on it with the faculty and the graduate students in the research team. 3. Professional development sessions within the research team are planned, once per week. In every meeting, the faculty or the graduate students in the research team will examine the progress of the project and the recent research results, exchange ideas with the undergraduate students, and help them develop research skills, including algorithm development, experimental design, scientific results evaluation, paper writing, and so on. 4. A poster session will be conducted at the end of the project in which the results of this project will be presented to the research teams of the faculty, the Computer Science Department, and the collaborators of the faculty.
