Speaker's bio: Dafei Yin is Data Scientist in Mobike. He built the Data Team from scratch in Mobike which currently include Artificial Intelligence, Business Intelligence, Visual intelligence, Data as Service and Data Infrastructure groups. The goal of the team is to make the company data driven and move fast. Before joining Mobike, he worked as Product Engineer at Esri and Senior Data Engineer in Dhgate. Dafei got his Ph.D. in Peking University and work as Postdoctoral Research Associate in Tsinghua University afterwards.
Talk abstract: In this talk, Dafei will discuss 1) how to apply machine learning algorithms to improve the daily bike operation, 2) how to determine where to put the bikes, and 3) how to relocate the bikes efficiently and predict the optimal location to set up bike parking position. Dafei will also discuss how these data be used in city planning and transform the traditional concept in urban development.
Professor Keith Ross, Dean of Engineering and Computer Science, will introduce Dr. Dafei Yin. This event is sponsored by NYU Shanghai Center for Data Science and Analytics.
