When building the first version of the Profiler for the Wi-Fi in the Moscow Metro
we had no data at all. Except for the raw BIND DNS logs.
We had to build our own training corpus in order to be able to predict user`s gender, age, interests, income level and so on.
We also had to infer places of interest: locations where he works, lives, dines and wines but that`s the other story.
We used publicly available VK.com user profiles as well as some other sources to build this training corpus.
On this page we are sharing datasets of public VKontakte user profiles as well as some tools we wrote to acquire the data.
