Job Summary

During your time in Athens you will work on developing an algorithm/model that incorporates user feedback, data analytics and transportation theory. Your work will be the foundation for a smartphone application that aims to predict, analyse, propose and model user movements in sequences of trips. We do not merely want to optimize movement from A to B, we want to make it faster, more pleasant and safer. As an engineer working with data-sets, you probably have seen how these data-sets relate to the system rather than the person. Currently, user feedback is a means for calibrating. What we believe is that user feedback is a means for extending and enriching the data-sets. Only then can we transmit a meaningful message to the user and propose a better tour, based on his/her preferences.
