Project title: Analyzing big data with temporal graphs and machine learning: application to urban traffic analysis and protein function annotation. PI: Sabeur Aridhi; Partners: LORIA/Inria NGE, Federal University of Ceará (UFC); Value: 20 k€; Duration: 2017–2020. Description: This project aims to investigate and propose solutions for both urban traffic-related problems and protein annotation problems. In the case of urban traffic analysis, problems such as traffic speed prediction, travel time prediction, traffic congestion identification and nearest neighbors identification will be tackled. In the case of protein annotation problem, protein graphs and/or protein–protein interaction (PPI) networks will be modeled using dynamic time-dependent graph representations.
