What’s location intelligence? Checkout my lightening talk for the Dagstuhl seminar on Data Series Management. 👇

Abstract

For the first time in human's history, the position of more than three-quarters of the world’s population is recorded at a fine-grained spatiotemporal resolution. This massive data source provides a unique view for infrastructure planning, retail development, and demographic research. In this talk, I overview two important localization strategies based on cellular and WiFi networks. In addition, the correct handling of missing or imprecise data points is presented as one of the major challenges in providing actionable insights with quality guarantees.
