Multi-agent trajectory prediction, as a critical task in modeling complex interactions of objects in dynamic systems, has attracted significant research attention in recent years. Despite the promising advances, existing studies all follow the assumption that data distribution observed during model learning matches that encountered in real-world deployments. However, this assumption often does not hold in practice, as inherent distribution shifts might exist in the mobility patterns for deployment environments, thus leading to poor domain generalization and performance degradation. Consequently, it is appealing to leverage trajectories from multiple source domains to mitigate such discrepancies for multi-agent trajectory prediction task. However, the development of multi-source domain generalization in this task presents two notable issues: (1) negative transfer; (2) inadequate modeling for external factors. To address these issues, we propose a new causal formulation to explicitly model four types of features: domain-invariant and domain-specific features for both the focal agent and neighboring agents. Building upon the new formulation, we propose AdapTraj, a multi-source domain generalization framework specifically tailored for multi-agent trajectory prediction. AdapTraj serves as a plug-and-play module that is adaptable to a variety of models. Extensive experiments on four datasets with different domains demonstrate that AdapTraj consistently outperforms other baselines by a substantial margin.
As a fundamental component in location-based services, inferring the relationship between points-of-interests (POIs) is very critical for service providers to offer good user experience to business owners and customers. Most of the existing methods for relationship inference are not targeted at POI, thus failing to capture unique spatial characteristics that have huge effects on POI relationships. In this work we propose PRIM to tackle POI relationship inference for multiple relation types. PRIM features four novel components, including a weighted relational graph neural network, category taxonomy integration, a self-attentive spatial context extractor, and a distance-specific scoring function. Extensive experiments on two real-world datasets show that PRIM achieves the best results compared to state-of-the-art baselines and it is robust against data sparsity and is applicable to unseen cases in practice.
We present TODS, an automated Time Series Outlier Detection System for research and industrial applications. TODS is a highly modular system that supports easy pipeline construction. The basic building block of TODS is primitive, which is an implementation of a function with hyperparameters. TODS currently supports 70 primitives, including data processing, time series processing, feature analysis, detection algorithms, and a reinforcement module. Users can freely construct a pipeline using these primitives and perform end- to-end outlier detection with the constructed pipeline. TODS provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI), where users can flexibly design a pipeline with drag-and-drop. Moreover, a data-driven searcher is provided to automatically discover the most suitable pipelines given a dataset. TODS is released under Apache 2.0 license at https://github.com/datamllab/tods.
