NextPlace: A Spatio-temporal Prediction Framework for Pervasive Systems
Abstract. Accurate and fine-grained prediction of future user location and geographical profile has interesting and promising applications including targeted content service, advertisement dissemination for mobile users, and recreational social networking tools for smart-phones. Existing techniques based on linear and probabilistic models are not able to provide accurate prediction of the location patterns from a spatio-temporal perspective, especially for long-term estimation. More specifically, they are able to only forecast the next location of a user, but not his/her arrival time and residence time, i.e., the interval of time spent in that location. Moreover, these techniques are often based on prediction models that are not able to extend predictions further in the future. In this paper we present NextPlace, a novel approach to location prediction based on nonlinear time series analysis of the arrival and residence times of users in relevant places. NextPlace focuses on the pre...
