  • Who is Predictive Analytics World for?

    PAW attendees range across verticals and across enterprise functions.

    No matter what your role in or relationship to predictive analytics projects, you will find value in the sessions, case studies and networking available at Predictive Analytics World.

    Managers. Project leaders, directors, CXOs, vice presidents, investors and decision makers of any kind involved with analytics, direct marketing or online marketing activities.
    Marketers. Personnel running or supporting direct marketing, response modeling, or online marketing who wish to improve response rates and increase campaign ROI for retention, upsell and cross-sell.
    Technology experts. Analysts, data scientists, BI directors, developers, DBAs, data warehousers, web analysts, and consultants who wish to extend their expertise to predictive analytics.

  • Big data and data science

    Predictive analytics is central to the big data and data science movements. The ultimate use of data is to learn from it to predict. Focusing on data or how much of it there is can overlook this point. What is the value, the function, the purpose? The most actionable win from data — to more effectively drive organizational operations — is prediction.

  • Machine learning

    Predictive analytics means the commercial deployment of machine learning (the two terms are often used synonymously). Although the term “machine learning” used to be common only within the walls of research labs, it’s now also used more and more in the context of commercial deployment. Whichever term you prefer, we are discussing technology that learns from data to predict or infer an unknown, including decision trees, logistic regression, neural networks, and many others.

  • Experts and newcomers

    Predictive Analytics World covers all the bases for both expert practitioners as well as newcomers. As the universal, cross-vendor meeting place that brings together the who’s who of predictive analytics, PAW presents not only unique opportunities to gain knowledge, but the industry’s premier networking event.

  • Get started

    If you’re new to predictive analytics, kicking off a new initiative, or exploring new ways to position it at your organization, there’s no better place to get your bearings than Predictive Analytics World. See what other companies are doing, witness vendor demos, participate in discussions with the experts, network with your colleagues and weigh your options!

  • Valuable colleagues

    Mingle, network and hang out with your best and brightest colleagues. Exchange experiences over lunch, breaks and the conference reception, connecting with those professionals who face the same challenges as you.

  • How do you make it sure it works on new data?

In this workshop, renowned practitioner and hugely popular instructor Dr. John Elder will describe the key inner workings of leading machine learning algorithms, demonstrate their performance with business case studies, compare their merits, and show you how to select the method and tool best suited to each predictive analytics project.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of the most popular algorithms, including classical regression, decision trees, nearest neighbors, and neural networks, as well as breakthrough ensemble methods such as bagging, boosting, and random forests.

This workshop will also cover useful ways to visualize, select, reduce, and engineer features – such as principal components and projection pursuit. Most importantly, Dr. Elder reveals how the essential resampling techniques of cross-validation and bootstrapping make your models robust and reliable.

Throughout the workshop day, Dr. Elder will share his (often humorous) stories from real-world applications, highlighting mistakes to avoid.

If you’d like to become a practitioner of predictive analytics – or if you already are and would like to hone your knowledge across methods and best practices – this workshop is for you.

 

What you will learn:

  • The tremendous value of learning from data
  • How to create valuable predictive models with machine learning for your business

Introduction to Artificial Intelligence for Marketing

From market research to direct mail metrics to web analytics to Big Data, the job of “marketing” has changed dramatically over time. We have arrived at a fundamental shift in marketing that is as impactful as the advent of the Internet: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

This workshop introduces marketing professionals of all ranks to the theory, the language and the practical application of these disruptive technologies.

This workshop will not teach you how to be a data scientist.

It will teach you enough about the language and implications to speak cogently with your colleagues, and determine where to apply this innovative technology first. You will also get a firm grasp on how these new tools will change your job and what you can do to remain relevant in tomorrow’s marketing department.

Key Takeaways

  • How Machine Learning Works for Marketing
  • What Machine Learning Cannot do for Marketing
  • How to Onboard AI and ML into Your Organization

This workshop is for marketing professionals who are comfortable consuming analytics outputs, but must now face a new, educational learning curve.

This workshop is for data scientists to help them understand the problem the marketing department is trying to solve and the available data sets.

This workshop is for marketing managers who must respond to the C-level insistence that the marketing department “get with the times” (management by in-flight magazine).

This workshop is for those who need to survive in these changing times even though they are not data scientists, algorithm magicians, or predictive analytics statisticians.

Each participant will receive a copy of Jim’s twelfth book:

Need more information?

  • What is predictive analytics?

    Predictive analytics optimizes marketing campaigns and website behavior to increase customer responses, conversions and clicks, and to decrease churn. Each customer’s predictive score informs actions to be taken with that customer — business intelligence just doesn’t get more actionable than that.

    Predictive analytics is business intelligence technology that produces a predictive score for each customer or other organizational element. Assigning these predictive scores is the job of a predictive model which has, in turn, been trained over your data, learning from the experience of your organization.

  • Is predictive analytics different from forecasting?

    Predictive Analytics World London often include select sessions on forecasting since it is a closely related area, and, in some cases, predictive analytics is used as a component to build a forecast model.
    However, Predictive analytics is something else entirely, going beyond standard forecasting by producing a predictive score for each customer or other organizational element. In contrast, forecasting provides overall aggregate estimates, such as the total number of purchases next quarter. For example, forecasting might estimate the total number of ice cream cones to be purchased in a certain region, while predictive analytics tells you which individual customers are likely to buy an ice cream cone.

  • Is this a “machine learning” conference?

    Yes. Predictive analytics means the commercial deployment of machine learning (the two terms are often used synonymously). Although the term “machine learning” used to be common only within the walls of research labs, it’s now also used more and more in the context of commercial deployment. Whichever term you prefer, we are discussing technology that learns from data to predict or infer an unknown, including decision trees, logistic regression, neural networks, and many other methods.

  • Is this a “data mining” conference?

    Yes. Data mining is often used synonymously with predictive analytics, and, in any case, predictive analytics is a type of data mining.

  • Is this a “data science” conference?

    Yes. Predictive analytics is a form of data science. Moreover, it is the most actionable form. A predictive model generates a predictive score for each individual, which in turn directly informs decisions for that individual, e.g., whether to contact, extend a retention offer, approve for credit, investigate for fraud, or apply a certain medical treatment. Rather than solely providing insights, predictive analytics directly drives or informs millions of operational decisions.

  • Is this a “big data” conference?

    Yes. Predictive analytics is a key method to truly leverage big data. At the center of the big data revolution is prediction. The whole point of data is to learn from it to predict. What is the value, the function, the purpose? Predictions drive and render more effective the millions of organizational operational decisions taken every day.

  • Is this an AI conference?

    Yes. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad, subjective term with many possible definitions—but by any definition, it always includes machine learning (predictive modeling) as an example of AI technology/capabilities.

  • Is Predictive Analytics World run by a software vendor?

    No. Predictive Analytics World provides a balanced view of predictive analytics methods and tools across software vendors and solution providers.

  • Is Predictive Analytics World a research conference?

    No. Predictive Analytics World is focused on today’s commercial deployment of predictive analytics, rather than academic or R&D activities. Separately, there are a number of research-oriented conferences; in predictive analytics’ commercial application, we are essentially standing on the shoulders of those giants known as researchers.
