    Sell your subscriber data and make big money! That’s literally what NTT DOCOMO did. The first of its kind, Telco Data Analytics USA was held in Palo Alto from November 28 to 29. The event featured a broad roster of experts from various fields ranging from service providers such as AT&T, Bell Canada, Charter, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Sprint, and T-Mobile US to data scientists from Apple, Google, IBM, and LinkedIn, as well as all sorts of equipment vendors, all sharing the same thing in common: data and artificial intelligence (AI). The attendance was close to 100 people, and it’s worth mentioning that Huawei was the lead sponsor, followed by Gold Sponsors Dell EMC and Nokia and Silver Sponsor NetScout. Other Bronze and Associate Sponsors were mainly data specialists like Cardinality, CellMining, and Subex. Clients, please log in to view the full content.

He told the crowd of 1,400 attendees (up from 1,200 last year in Tokyo and 900 in 2015 in Hong Kong) that in north-western China, dairy farmers are using smart collar technology to track everything from the grazing habits of their herds to the specific body temperature of individual cows.
