Abstract: Event prediction across customer journey by leveraging the rich and granular customer interaction data is becoming critical to enable smarter marketing. However, the current ML process has several challenges that prevent us from doing this effectively, efficiently and profitably across problems and domains/ - the process is iterative, manual, hard to scale and heavily reliant on domain expertise. These issues tend to be show-stoppers in some cases, and a solution that can accelerate the iterations, scale to any data volume and transfer to any domain can be key to driving ROI. This session will explore evolutionary techniques, coupled with cutting edge machine learning methods across domains to achieve remarkable results from 5x acceleration while maintaining or improving prediction accuracy by up to 10-20%.
