Netherlands-based location/transportation data supplier Here Technologies has pushed researchers to apply big-data techniques to films of traffic in Berlin, Istanbul, and Moscow, to predict traffic.
The firm’s artificial intelligence institute recently hosted a traffic forecasting competition which demonstrated neural networks' ability to extract patterns from massive datasets.
The company’s Michael Kopp said Here gave the competition’s participants months’ worth of color-coded traffic data from the major German, Turkish and Russian cities; contestants built software tools to mine patterns from that information.
Kopp said Sungbin Choi, an independent researcher from Seoul, won the contest with a tool that had an error rate of less than 1%.
