Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll build a model that can predict the age of customers for a telecom company. You’ll take basic profile data and call records for your customers, and build and improve a linear regression model using graph features. Finally, you’ll use a powerful graph neural network that can combine data from both profile features and graph structure to reliably reveal customer age range.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
