Using Locations for Online-Behaviour Prediction with Sparse Data
User behaviour varies with their current location, as a consequence their engagement with online media (say Ads) varies with where they are; Knowing the type of location can help us target the user better and recommend better.
After the advent of GPS technology, it is easy and inexpensive to get location information from devices, but the data is often sparse for an ad network as they only get a partial view of user data. We present a novel algorithm to classify locations using the GPS data along with anonymous ad-request data such that it performs optimally with sparse GPS signals with no supervised data at all.
Our results show that the algorithm has a better prediction accuracy compared to existing methods and correlates well with the user behaviours.
- Introduction / Context Setting
- Why the need to classify the locations
- Location as the key attribute for recommendations
- Data exploration and modeling.
- Deploying the model using Spark
- How users interact differently at different locations
- Visualization of results for Bangalore and Bay Area.
- Results and take home message
