    Nice post Eric, do you maybe have an Ipython notebook of the same with the model people can play with?

    • Eric says:

      Thanks Billy! Unfortunately, it’s done in Matlab and the data is not publicly available but you need to request an access to it separately. However, I’m moving more and more towards using Python maybe the next model.. ūüôā

    An excellent post, Eric, thank you. It was good to meet you in Reykjavik. When we talked at your poster, I had the impression that you used an automatic process to cluster the venue categories, did I understand correctly? Do any of your publications detail this?

      Hi Isabel! Yes, you’re right, the figure in the post is done based on Foursquare categories but I also did the same thing unsupervisedly using a mixture model. This has been described in my master’s thesis (link above) in Sec. 6.2, Sec. 6.4.1, and Fig. 6.6, in particular. Hope you’ll find it useful!
