Making Business Bayesian: From Uncertainty to Action
Making Business Bayesian: From Uncertainty to Action


Businesses have spent decades trying to make better decisions through the complete understanding of data. New technologies make Bayesian inference and generative modeling more accessible to business analysts. But the ability to rapidly quantify uncertainty, simulate new data, and understand direction, magnitude, and confidence of effects creates new communications challenges. This talk presents techniques for capturing domain knowledge and making findings actionable for decision makers utilizing the explanatory powers of transparent AI.
