att_abstract={{With the development of mobility technology, location data has become  collectible by various positioning technologies.  Different positioning technologies have their advantages and limitations. In this paper, we propose semi-supervised learning in inferring low-accuracy location data from high-accuracy location data.  We focus on the enormous amount of low-accuracy Cell Tower Triangulation (CTT) calculated mobile device location data, and the small amount of high-accuracy Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS) pinpointed location data.  The CTT and AGPS mobile device location data is collected for each cell tower that serves the devices, then the actual distribution is learned from both CTT and AGPS data by semi-supervised learning  and the likelihood for low-accuracy CTT location can be used as an accuracy indicator. The proposed method takes the advantage of the existing extensively collected location data, and augments it by a machine learning algorithm, which complements the downside of one technology with the other technology. This big data approach improves the location accuracy statistically without the added complexity and cost of upgrading or replacing mobile networks or devices. In addition, it keeps detail location information and reserves user privacy. }},
