A Deep Learning Spatiotemporal Prediction Framework for Mobile Crowdsourced Services

  title={A Deep Learning Spatiotemporal Prediction Framework for Mobile Crowdsourced Services},
  author={Ahmed Ben Said and Abdelkarim Erradi and Azadeh Ghari Neiat and Athman Bouguettaya},
  journal={Mobile Networks and Applications},
This papers presents a deep learning-based framework to predict crowdsourced service availability spatially and temporally. A novel two-stage prediction model is introduced based on historical spatio-temporal traces of mobile crowdsourced services. The prediction model first clusters mobile crowdsourced services into regions. The availability prediction of a mobile crowdsourced service at a certain location and time is then formulated as a classification problem. To determine the availability…
