We will discuss in technical detail how to build a predictive model for product recommendations to increase revenue and improve customer experience. If you are interested in building your own predictive model, this meetup is for you. Light refreshments will be served.
NOTE: This presentation will expand on the topics discussed in our first meetup, and go into greater detail.
Presented by Alex Lin, Sr. Architect of Intelligent Mining
