Using Smartphone Crowd Data to Answer New Questions in Divers Industrial FieldsGrace Hopper Stage
Motivated by assessing the performance of mobile network services, P3 communications developed a Software Development Kit, which gathers a vast amount of data from millions of end user devices worldwide. Apart from its original purpose, P3 successfully used these data to answer exciting questions within the scope of diverse industry projects. This presentation will give an overview on selected projects and will point out some challenges arising when processing and analyzing the data in the context of such projects, including cleaning the data, dealing with missing features, and deriving statistically valid insights from the data. Furthermore, potential use cases for the data as well as new ideas to enhance the accuracy and applicability of the data using spatial statistics and machine learning methods will be discussed.
