Special Seminar: Hua Lu "Data Management for Ubiquitous and Smart LBS"
Data Management for Ubiquitous and Smart LBS
Data management plays an indispensable role in enabling, improving and enriching various LBS applications. Today’s LBS applications are increasingly expected to be ubiquitous (e.g., functional across space boundaries) and smart (e.g., adaptive to implicit or even unknown user locations). Focusing on such expectations, this talk will introduce three relevant aspects of my research. First, I will present indoor data management that aims to support LBS in a new frontier---indoor space. Second, I will talk about social data management for LBS users with explicit or implicit locations. Third, I will touch upon how to make sense of mobility data generated in broad LBS settings. In the end of the talk, I will share with the audience my thoughts on the directions of future research on LBS in the context of big spatial data.
