Spring into STEM | Machine Learning for Cities
14 April 2023, 2:00 pm–2:30 pm
How can we use machine learning to understand cities? This Virtual Lecture will be given by Dr Tim Hillel from the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, part of the Spring into STEM webinars from UCL Engineering
CEGE Communications - UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering
Tim Hillel is a lecturer in the Department of Civil Environmental, and Geomatic Engineering at UCL, where he leads the Behaviour & Infrastructure Group (BIG), which aims to build a deeper understanding of urban systems and infrastructure networks using human behaviour as the central component of analysis. In this talk, Tim will be discussing how we can apply machine learning and optimisation to simulate how people interact with and move around cities. This research promises to support better decision making for transport and energy networks. Tim will explain how this research will also support teaching on the new Transport and Mobility Systems MSc and Infrastructure Systems MSc starting at UCL in September 2023.

About the Speaker
Dr Tim Hillel
Lecturer in Analytics of Infrastructure Systems
Tim leads the Behaviour & Infrastructure Group at UCL, which aims to build a deeper understanding of urban systems and infrastructure networks using human behaviour as the central component of analysis. The methodological approaches employed within the group are diverse, and combine machine learning and artificial intelligence, statistical modelling, optimisation, and simulation. The group sits within the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) at UCL, co-affiliated with both the Infrastructure Systems Institute (ISI) and the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS).More about Dr Tim Hillel
