"I know what you’ll do next summer!"
Doesn't it sound more exciting than remembering what you did (or did not do) last summer?
If yes, you should definitely join the upcoming BIS'n'Beer on the 14th of November.
For the first time, the BIS'n'Beer stage will host the Swiss FinTech Startup "Contovista".
Contovista empowers product campaigns for banks and knows what banking product (e.g., credit card or investment product) you will buy even before you know it!
How? "AI&data", says Kevin Smith, Head of Analytics and AI of Contovista.
In his talk, Kevin will not only reveal how exciting it is to work with high quality data combined with the latest Machine Learning techniques, but he will also highlight some of the main relevant (and interesting) aspects that need to be taken into account during a data science project. Moreover, he will provide insights and lessons learned from one of his projects in which the credit card campaign for a Swiss bank was empowered with AI&data.
Kevin’s passion is modelling and understanding data using state-of-the-art AI models and following the topic’s latest research. Together with his ability to bridge the gap between technology and business, he regularly translates new scientific advances in AI into real-world business value for their clients. In his free time, Kevin enjoys doing sports and working on his personal AI projects, such as facial recognition or language modelling. Kevin holds a M.Sc. in Quantitative Finance from ETH Zurich.
Contovista will sponsor the event and will be available during the Apéro for networking.
We are delighted to host Kevin and Contovista and we look forward to learning together with you.
