Leading Faculty: Ramez Elmasri
Mission: The MAST Data Lab focuses on mining and analysis of spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data. Spatio-temporal data is data associated with spatial locations that change over time, which may be slow-changing or rapidly changing (moving objects). Examples of such data include land use, storm tracking, vehicle and cell phone tracking, check-in data used for recommendations, population data, crime data, and fire/flood tracking. Such data typically has geographic (spatial) attributes that change over time. Our research is widespread across analysis, mining, indexing, modeling and storage of spatio-temporal data. Some of our recent research includes spatial location prediction of moving objects, recommendation systems, data integrity and integration, indexing and querying of moving objects, and storm tracking. We recently have introduced neural networks and deep learning methods in our research for better analysis and understanding of the data.
