In this paper, we assess the ability of Airbnb data to identify locations prone to neighbourhood change using data from the Airbnb platform in Dublin, Ireland. Emerging Hotspot Analysis was utilized to identify areas where change is potentially occurring. The results of the analysis were validated by analysing literature about different types of neighbourhood change occurring in Dublin. The results show patterns of change which are occurring in many neighbourhoods in Dublin can be captured by changes in the Airbnb data. The city centre appears to have reachedsaturation point in the volume of Airbnb lettings, while other areas which are undergoing differentforms of Airbnb change are emerging as changing neighbourhoods. This paper shows that Airbnb data has a high potential to reveal underlying socioeconomic processes in the city and also highlights the importance of open access to data for urban studies and monitoring.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2020 IEEE||Keywords:||Neighbourhoud change; Spatiotemporal analysis; Space-time cube; Airbnb; Dublin; Gentrification||DOI:||10.1109/ICSGSC50906.2020.9248558||Other versions:||https://www.ieee-pes.org/meetings-and-conferences/conference-calendar/monthly-view/166-technically-cosponsored-by-pes/979-2020-4th-international-conference-on-smart-grid-and-smart-cities-icsgsc||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||The 4th International Conference on Smart Grid and Smart Cities (ICSGSC 2020)||Conference Details:||The 2020 4th International Conference on Smart Grid and Smart Cities (ICSGSC), Osaka, Japan, 18-21 August 2020||ISBN:||9781728194042||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
