News: Monday, 19. October 2015


Researchers from the VehicularLab participated at this year's edition of the Telecom Italia Big Data Challenge. The aim of the contest was to propose new applications through the analysis of multiple large datasets for 7 big cities in Italy (mobile phone data, floating car data, social media data and many more).

The proposal of our team was a new "Happiness Index" based on the analysis of mobility and topographic datasets to assess and compare the quality of life of the 7 Italian cities. The proposal has been selected out of more than 500 submissions to be part of the last 10 finalists.
