Crowd Analysis for Urban Event Detection

23 May 2017, 12:00 - 14:00
Chelmsford campus

Dr M Shamim Kaiser, Visiting Research Fellow at the Anglia Ruskin IT Research Institute, will discuss a case study for a possible urban event detection framework (UEDF) which fuses various data sources after crowd analysis.


The contemporary growth of ubiquitous technology has contributed with various innovative means to pursue human activities in urban space. The urban dynamics unveiled by these means generate an enormous amount of big data from different urban applications. These data has unfastened new opportunities, to understand and predict urban dynamics in detail, and plan various real-time services and applications in response to that. This work mainly discussed various types of data generated by the crowd(habitat and non-habitat) in urban space, and their capabilities to detect an urban event in a particular geo-location. Thus, a possible urban event detection framework (UEDF) which fuses various data sources after crowd analysis will be discussed. For a better understanding of the UEDF, a case study will be presented.


M Shamim Kaiser received the BS and MS degrees in Applied Physics Electronics and Comm Engg from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh 2002 and 2004 respectively, and the PhD degree in Telecommunications from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand, in 2010. In 2005, he joined in ETE Dept, Daffodil International University as a Lecturer, in 2010 he worked in BRAC University, Dhaka as Assistant Professor. Since 2011, he has been with Institute of Information Technology of Jahangirnagar University, Dhaka as Assistant Professor and became an Associate Professor in 2015. His current research interests include Multi-hop Cellular network, Machine Learning, Big Data Analytics and Cloud computing. He has authored more than 100 papers in different peer-reviewed journals/conferences and received 'Best Paper Awards' for three conference papers (COMSNETS 2010, ICEEICT 2014, ICEEICT 2015) as an author/co-author. Dr Kaiser is a Life Member of Bangladesh Electronic Society; Bangladesh Physical Society; Bangladesh Computer Society. He is a senior member of IEEE, USA, a member of IEICE, Japan and ExCom member of IEEE Bangladesh Section.
