Corporate relocation prediction: a 10 year - 2 million companies use case.
Whenever you do something that nobody has tried to do before, you often encounter difficulties, that well, nobody has found before! During this talk we will walk you through the data, the modelling, the problems (and solutions!) that we encountered when working together with Graydon on predicting for different kinds of companies the probability of moving from one place to another. For this use case, we analyzed 10 years of data for two million companies using around 100 descriptors / features, and produced a nice predictive model using random forest in the Google Cloud Platform.
