Real devices contributed by the 51Degrees Contributor. 51Degrees data processing system contains hundreds of millions of unique HTTP headers including crawlers, apps and web browsers. Less than 1.75% of the total available headers form a training data set which is used with machine learning techniques to achieve 99.9% or greater device detection accuracy when compared to the full data set.
