Due to the increasing use of mobile phones and their increasing capabilities, huge amount of usage and location data can be collected. Location prediction is an important task for mobile phone operators and smart city administrations to provide better services and recommendations. In this work, we propose a sequence mining based approach for location prediction of mobile phone users. More specifically, we present a modified Apriori-based sequence mining algorithm for the next location prediction, which involves use of multiple support thresholds for different levels of pattern generation process. The proposed algorithm involves a new support definition, as well. We have analyzed the behaviour of the algorithm under the change of threshold through experimental evaluation and the experiments indicate improvement in comparison to conventional Apriori-based algorithm.

Predicting the next location of people from their mobile phone logs has become an active research area. Due to two main reasons this problem is very challenging: the log data is very large and there are variety of granularity levels for specifying the spatial and the temporal attributes. In this work, we focus on predicting the next location change of the user and when this change occurs. Our method has two steps, namely clustering the spatial data into larger regions and grouping temporal data into time in...

In recent years, using cell phone log data to model human mobility patterns became an active research area. This problem is a challenging data mining problem due to huge size and non-uniformity of the log data, which introduces several granularity levels for the specification of temporal and spatial dimensions. This paper focuses on the prediction of the location of the next activity of the mobile phone users. There are several versions of this problem. In this work, we have concentrated on the following th...
Mobile user data mining to infer knowledge workers' differences in office environments for effective health delivery
Çavdar, Şeyma; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2019)
Owing to the widespread and ubiquitous nature of mobile technologies, a large amount of data about users including location, access and interaction behavior is currently available. This data has recently become important as it has the potential to reveal personal information, social context and user characteristics, which can be significant for effective health interventions through mobile phones. Accordingly, this thesis mainly aims to explore the individual differences of knowledge workers and social cont...
Location update generation and performance analysis in cellular mobile computing systems
Yoncacı, İlker; Demirös, Onur; Erten, Murat; Department of Information Systems (2002)
The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) allows user universal and worlwide access to information and the ability to communicate with each other independently of their location and mobility. Tracking mobile users is one of the basic functions of the network system and one of the important issues in the design of a mobile computing system is how to manage the real-time locations of mobile clients. Most of the mobile computing applications are expected to support location- dependent continuous querie...
