    Tensor learning for Large-Scale Spatiotemporal Analysis

    Spatiotemporal data is ubiquitous in our daily life, including climate, transportation,
    and social media. Today, data is being collected at an unprecedented scale.
    Yesterdays concepts and tools are insufficient to serve tomorrow's data-driven
    decision makers. Particularly, spatiotemporal data often demonstrates complex
    dependency structures and is of high dimensionality. This requires new machine
    learning algorithms that can handle highly correlated samples, perform efficient
    dimension reduction, and generate structured predictions.

    In this talk, I will present tensor methods, a scalable framework for capturing
    high-order structures in spatiotemporal data. I will demonstrate how to learn from
    spatiotemporal data efficiently in both offline and online setting. I will also show
    interesting discoveries by our methods in climate and social media applications.
