Our client needed a way to fill in major gaps in user behavior in order to measure quality and engagement with a new product offering. Collecting the user behavior data at scale was too expensive, but our team was able to leverage the data they did have. Valkyrie was tasked with using the available data to build models to retroactively construct user behavior.
We developed a set of statistical models that use downstream side effects (changes in a user’s consumption, use of other features, etc.) of user behavior to fill in the missing data gaps. Our scientists were able to navigate a complex, messy, and incomplete data set to construct data models of user behavior based on the observed secondary effects of the unobserved user behavior. The predictions of our models provide a scalable way to label previously opaque user behaviors.
Our data labeling models allow the client to better understand how users are interacting with their products. This actionable insight has wide reaching effects on a range of business functions including product developers, marketing, content curators, and sales. The client is now able to identify and therefore mitigate everything from software bugs and implementations that cause costly data traffic to product quality gaps.
