Bilateral Contracts with Industry


Participants : Douglas Do Couto Teixiera, Licia Amichi, Lucas Santos de Oliveira [EMBRACE] , Aline Carneiro Viana.

Since June 2014, we have a collaboration with GranData (, Buenos Aires, Argentina on traffic vs mobility modeling of smartphone users. GranData is a small company that integrates first-party and telco partner data to understand key market trends, to predict customer behavior, and to deliver business results. For the time being, the collaboration with Grandata has generated knowledge transfer. From both directions, (1) from myself to GranData, I have being transferring my knowledge in modeling and analysing human behavior in terms of mobility, encounters, and content demand, (2) from them to myself, they have advising me on issues related to machine learning and statistical methods to be used. It describes an industrial partner's collaboration having the outcomes of our works impacting their products (e.g., GranData data mining algorithms can be improved based on the better understanding on mobility and content consumption of mobile users) or research/business decisions (e.g., proved strong correlations between mobility and data traffic consumption can open new perspectives of services to telecom operators, i.e., clients of GranData).

Part of the thesis of Guangshuo Chen (endend April 2018) and of Eduardo Mucelli (ended in 2015) on data traffic analysis used telco traces provided by GranData.
