Machine Learning Is from Venus, Econometric Modeling Is from Mars: Two Different Travel Forecasting Perspectives

Session 560

Convention Center, 146B

Machine learning has evolved into a powerful and popular approach to analyzing the massive amounts of data generated by internet and other electronic activity. These approaches are now being used in travel forecasting. Please join us for a session that strives to move us toward a travel forecasting future that integrates machine learning and more typical econometric modeling.

Josie Kressner will join the panel alongside Alexei Pozdnukov (University of California, Berkeley), Eric Miller (University of Toronto), and Joel Freedman (RSG).
