KD-­LBSN : Knowledge Discovery from Location-­Based Social Networks (KD-­LBSN)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2014 Jan 01 to 2015 Jun 30

Financed by: FCT - EXPL/EEI-ESS/0427/2013

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

The KD-­LBSN project addresses the specific problem of mining useful knowledge from location-­based social networks, focusing on the development of models that, by capturing the dynamic relations between people, contents and locations, can support the analysis and inference of patterns from these three different types of entities. We believe that the research that is to be developed in the context of the project can provide insights into important questions about human social behavior, such as whether, and how, the spatio-­temporal distance between individuals can affect their social interaction.
