Gülnur Özbaş | Turkcell
Gülnur is the master expert geo-data scientist at Turkcell. With Turkcell’s location intelligence team, Gülnur performed a study leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to determine fiber investment areas and to predict the rate of return to sales by years. In this study, 80 data categories were used. Location-based data, each at different scales, were processed in 5.4 million grids using the ArcGIS Pro spatial analysis library. Turkcell realized a data accuracy rate of over 80 percent in market growth and consumer demand, allowing for improved infrastructure and sales activities.
Eric Carroll | University of Kentucky
Mapping utilities infrastructures from legacy systems can be daunting and problematic by nature. IT manager Eric and team at the University of Kentucky have streamlined the workflow for field data collection to build an intelligent utilities and telecommunications network by leveraging multiple Esri technologies, and custom extensions, to design, organize and field collect large datasets. The result is a logical network that garners the power and analytic capabilities of the ArcGIS Utility Network Platform.
