Silver Spring Networks' analytics division, Operations Optimizer, has been working on data mining projects with utility data for many years. Paul will share some of the most interesting projects the Operations Optimizer team has worked on. These projects include use cases such as finding homes with second refrigerators and how we could determine energy efficiency of houses based on insulation and AC usage. Paul will also discuss energy theft and the approaches to finding it while covering the process of thinking through use cases, designing solutions, and discussing successes/failures and interesting takeaways.
