About Machine Learning at Scale to Power Businesses (Bengaluru Meetup)
You are invited to join us at the MiQ Bengaluru Meetup for a session of learning and networking on Lavelle Road on the 1st of September 18.
The amount of data being created and collected continues to explode, increasing at exponential rates. This data gives brands the ability to track consumers, predict outcomes, and react accordingly: in theory, right message, right person, right time. But not in practice.
Despite the profusion of data, the ability to make meaningful decisions and take business-critical actions is not improving. At the heart of the problem is the Knowledge Gap and closing the Knowledge Gap is no simple task. Doing so requires the resources and technology to put that data to work.
Hear from experts who will cover best practices and use cases to integrate multiple data sources and processing on the go via a analytics modelling and actioning platform. In the second talk, we will cover introduction to data driven media planning that empowers brands to explore beyond the panel. Live examples of agile technology in play to solve bespoke client challenges will be followed soon after for a deeper understanding of these tools.
The meetup will touch on topics relating to:
- What is Marketing Intelligence
- How to leverage machine learning to power businesses
- Key case studies and demos
