DataSP: A Differentiable All-to-All Shortest Path Machine Learning Algorithm to Facilitate Learning Latent Costs from Trajectories


Practical AI Solutions for Traffic Management and Urban Planning

In traffic management and urban planning, the ability to learn optimal routes from demonstrations conditioned on contextual features holds significant promise. Understanding and recovering latent costs offer insights into decision-making mechanisms and pave the way for enhancing traffic flow management by anticipating congestion and offering real-time navigational guidance.

Recent Innovations

Recent advancements have seen the integration of neural networks with combinatorial solvers to learn from contextual features and combinatorial solutions end-to-end. A novel method proposed in a recent study aims to learn latent costs from observed trajectories by encoding them into frequencies of observed shortcuts.

DataSP: A Differentiable All-to-All Shortest Path Algorithm

To address scalability challenges, a differentiable adaptation of the Floyd-Warshall algorithm called DataSP has been introduced. By incorporating smooth approximations for essential operators, DataSP enables informative backpropagation through shortest-path computation, facilitating learning latent costs and proving effective in predicting likely trajectories and inferring probable destinations or future nodes.
