Challenges

  • Data Visualization
    • Build geographic network heat maps (i.e. signal strength), or other visualization tools, to help consumers or wireless carriers gain new insights on users, devices, and/or network behaviors.
    • Example:
      • App usage patterns by location and time of week/day.
  • Machine Learning
    • Utilize open source, or personally created, machine learning algorithms, to mine the mobile data to build insights, predict user behavior, and more.
    • Example:
      • Create an alert that predicts the loss of app users due to the app’s device resource requirements (i.e. battery drain, data usage, RAM, CPU, etc.)
  • App Development
    • Build Android app(s), providing consumers insights on their apps, device, and/or carrier networks.
    • Example:
      • Map users’ signal strength & quality.
      • Create a history of users’ app usage & performance, device performance, etc.
