This Wednesday: Data Standards Panel

Hi Friends,

Registration is open for two more Zephyr Virtual Sessions.  Sign up early as registration is required and seats are limited. If you cannot attend, please cancel your registration to give your space to somebody else. 

For those who haven't been able to attend past sessions, the materials and recordings are available on the Zephyr website at each respective event page.

Friday June 5th (This Week!!!) 

>> Panel on industry data standards hosted by Ben Stabler

      2:00-3:30 PM EDT / 11:00 AM-12:30 PM PDT  Registration Required – Limited Seats 

Data standards empower collaboration and help provide the infrastructure for building community tools.  The purpose of this discussion is to share and discuss data standards for our industry.  The discussion will introduce standards such as:

  • Open Matrix (OMX)
  • General Model Network Specification (GMNS)
  • Open Street Map (OSM)
  • General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)
  • Project Card Standard

Following brief presentations on each standard, the panel will discuss relevant issues with data standards, in cooperation with audience participants.

Tuesday/Friday June 23 & 26 (Next Week)

>> Machine Learning 101 for Transportation Analysis with Rick Donnelly

Due to the anticipated demand for this session, registration priority will be given to active Zephyr Members or people who belong to Member Organizations.  Registration to all will be confirmed for the remaining spots on June 16th.

Machine learning has been widely used in some fields, but has yet to really catch on in transport planning practice. However, research to date shows high promise for machine learning to complement existing approaches to understanding and predicting travel behavior. This two-part webinar will convey a broad introduction to the underlying concepts and methods, demystifying the confusing terminology and concepts within the context of transport planning applications.</p>

Rick Donnelly (WSP) will present this overview, and will be joined by colleagues Kyle Ward (Caliper Corporation) and Mausam Duggal (WSP) to show real-world examples of how machine learning has been applied in income imputation, mode choice, and analysis of truck GPS tracking data. The examples will walk the audience through how the data were prepared, run through training using different machine learning packages, how the results can be used for prediction, and observations on the process.

Background in linear algebra, probability and statistics will be helpful but not required for this overview.
