Yandex Data Factory provides machine learning solutions to Russia’s Beeline
Yandex Data Factory has announced a partnership with Beeline. The partnership is designed to create a portfolio of new services for Beeline based on analysis of its big data.
Using Yandex’s proprietary technologies, the two companies will work together to create solutions that will enable Beeline to better predict mobile subscribers churn, forecast demand for mobile internet services, improve call-centre sales force efficiency and optimise its advertising spend through personalised targeting. The stack of Yandex’s technologies to be used in this project includes machine learning technology, MatrixNet, behaviour analytics technology Crypta, the company’s own look-alike targeting technology, and its natural voice processing technology, SpeechKit.
“Beeline’s existing solutions will be enhanced by the predictive and recommendation models that Yandex Data Factory will develop for them. Our agreement with Beeline is based on a revenue sharing model and depends on economic benefits of implementing machine learning capabilities for Beeline” commented Jane Zavalishina, head of Yandex Data Factory. “Considerably large volumes of data and a focus to improve customer service makes telecommunications an attractive market with great potential for machine learning technologies. We hope to expand our partnership with Beeline through future projects.”
