Talk Abstract:

Sports analytics is generally defined as using data related to any sports or game and has only recently come into the limelight . Despite the sports industry being so rich in data, adoption of analytics in sports has been rather bumpy and ambiguous and there remains plenty of room for penetration. In this fireside chat, we’ll be discussing how impactful advanced analysis and predictive modeling can outperform regular custom/legacy analysis in the sports world. We’ll also dive into conversation surrounding how state of art models outperform old analysts methods and the resulting consequences that have reshaped sports business.

  • Fraud Detection- How to Operationalize your Models? Oct 27 2020 6:00 am UTC 49 mins
    Alexandre Hubert, Sales Engineering Director
    We are pleased to bring the second installment of a two-part webinar series on Fraud Detection. During the 1st webinar, we addressed why fraud hasn’t been solved yet. Addressed the need to move beyond a rule-based approach and how to navigate the creative thinking of fraudsters.

    During this webinar, we will look at fraud detection from a platform perspective and discover how to integrate ML techniques to the existing rule-based approach within an ML Framework and how to feed your fraud detection pipeline with right set of algorithms in order to ease the implementation of your use cases.
  • Fraud Detection: Why It Hasn't Been Solved Yet? Oct 20 2020 6:00 am UTC 26 mins
    Alexandre Hubert, Sales Engineering Director
    Global fraud in 2019 was nearly $60 billion, demonstrating how it is a global problem and not siloed to one industry. Fraudsters are always looking for new ways to subvert legitimate transaction systems — traditional rules-based approaches are no longer sufficient (or efficient enough) to combat fraud.

    During the first installment of this two-part webinar series, you will discover why there is a need to move beyond a rules-based approach for fraud detection, how to navigate the creative thinking of fraudsters, and the many factors that go into a machine learning fraud detection model

    7:45pm: Q&A

    Talk Abstract:

    Email communication is one of the most common activities on PCs and mobile devices and this holds true now more than ever. Nike invests a lot of effort into Email communication. Although the cost of sending one email may be small, the cost builds up as the number of emails aggregates. Also, the user engagement governs the reputation of Nike IP addresses and the KPIs. Therefore, it is important to identify the campaigns relevant to consumers with a high propensity of engagement.
    The goal of the Personalized Communications team is to serve the Nike consumers with the most relevant campaign emails at the right time with the right frequency. In this talk, Ankit will address important questions/topics relevant to the Personalization Communications team. He will also answer questions that explain how Nike is currently handling personalized communications, what’s working well and what’s not, and how to build the data foundation for Personalized Communications. Finally, Ankit will do a deep-dive into some of the data science models that the team is currently working on.

    Speaker bio:

    Ankit has 4+ years of experience informing business decisions through data science and statistical modeling. He is currently working as Sr. Data Scientist at Personalization and Data Science team at Nike. His previous experiences include working in Ad Tech and Finance industry.

  • Dataiku Demo Days Ep.2: ML-Based Marketing Attribution Models Recorded: Sep 29 2020 50 mins
    Greg Cashman, Senior Sales Engineer, Dataiku
    Historically, marketing attribution has been a painstakingly manual process based on heuristic models that often turn out to be more difficult (and less effective) than necessary. And unfortunately, due to their perceived simplicity, many marketing teams turn to outdated techniques such as the last click heuristic, where all the conversion merits are attributed to the last media contact or channel the customer was exposed to. This does not adequately capture user engagement, and risks undervaluing campaigns and content that are critical to conversion. Fortunately, the significant advances in marketing AI and machine learning (ML) in recent years allow organizations to solve perennial problems in new, more efficient ways. Join us for Demo Days and in just 30 minutes we will show you how to build, deploy, monitor and optimize ML-based attribution models.

    Dataiku Demo Days is a series of expert-led demos on various high-value AI use cases, such as driving efficiencies in the data-to-insights process and maximizing campaign impact with AutoML. These digestible sessions are designed to help jumpstart your organizations’ data efforts and inject agility at every step of the process.

    During the session, we will cover:
    1) How organisations deploy AI, ML, DS projects in production
    2) What are some key challenges and learnings
    3) Real-life examples of companies who have successfully deployed data science products.
