Talk 2: Using Machine Learning to Identify Mobile Phone Switchers

Consumers who are likely to switch mobile phones in the near term are a desirable advertising audience for the competitive telecommunications and mobile device market. Telecoms and mobile device manufacturers understand who their customers are but sometimes lack understanding of their competitors’ customers. Incomplete information leaves their internal churn predictions focused on internal customers instead of identifying prospects for advertising campaigns. To meet this market need, the data science team at Oracle Data Cloud developed a solution that identified people who were likely to switch phones in the near future. This talk will provide a short overview of Oracle Data Cloud's role in the Ad Tech industry and walk through how Oracle Data Cloud uses machine learning to identify people in the market for new phones.

Presenter:
Nate Klyn is a Senior Data Scientist at Oracle Data Cloud. Over the past four years, he has worked in client facing and technical roles in the digital marketing ecosystem. Currently, he is focused on creating data science products that provide value to Oracle Data Cloud's customers. Prior to his working career, Nate earned an MA of Economics at Miami University in Ohio and an Economics degree from the University of Northern Iowa

Special thanks to the Oracle team!
