This paper proposes a personalised frequency-based model for predicting a user’s pathway through a physical space, based on non-intrusive observations of users’ previous movements. Specifically, our approach estimates a user’s transition probabilities between discrete locations utilising personalised transition frequency counts, which in turn are estimated from the movements of other similar users. Our evaluation with a real-world dataset from the museum domain shows that our approach performs at least as well as a non-personalised frequency-based baseline, while attaining a higher predictive accuracy than a model based on the spatial layout of the physical museum space.
