Behaviour Modelling Summer School 2019
The Summer School of Behavioral Modeling at the University of Tokyo was held again this year. This year, six members of Fukuda Lab, including (M2 students) Ms. Wang, Mr. Shimizu (M1), Mr. Koyata, Mr. Kita, and (B4 students) Ms. Tabuchi and Mr. Ukai, participated in the summer school. We used the Mixed Logit model to analyze the residential inclinations of Yokohama residents’ trips to and from their homes for commuting. As for my personal impression, I was able to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of the logit model through the experience of constructing a model from scratch and conducting the analysis myself, given the limitations of the information available in the data and the number of samples. Moreover, I was able to spend a week with my new lab members who joined this year, and we had a chance to get to know each other better. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of Hato Laboratory at the University of Tokyo for their smooth operation and communication as the organizer.
