Multidisciplinary Science for Understanding Human Activity at Scale
Thursday, September 13 | 1:00 to 2:30 pm | Toyota Auditorium
Dr. Amy Rose is the Team Lead for Population Distribution
and Dynamics in the Geographic Information Science and
Technology group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. She
also serves as an ORNL Joint Faculty Assistant Professor in
the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at
The University of Tennessee.
Understanding how people live and move in the world is a fundamental component in a wide variety of application spaces including resource management, public policy, epidemiology, emergency preparedness, and crisis response. Recent advances in global high resolution population modeling at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) apply novel spatial data analyses, integrate machine learning methods for feature extraction, incorporate volunteered geographic information, and exploit high performance computing algorithms and infrastructure. This presentation will focus on research being done at the nexus of geoscience, computer science, and social science to foster the ongoing development of models to produce high resolution estimates of population in space and time.
