Enjoy talks about the most innovative subjects in: AI, ML, voice platforms, the Cloud and search. One of the objectives of Dynamic Talks is to foster and encourage the local technology community to share knowledge. Every event is free, with complimentary food and drinks.Topic: Machine Learning for Enterprise OperationsAgenda [6:00pm - 6:30pm]: Guests arrive, food and drinks are served [6:30pm - 7:15pm]: The first talk will be by Ilya Katsov on “Customer Intelligence: a Machine Learning Approach”, followed by a Q&A [7:15pm - 7:30pm]: Networking break [7:30pm - 8:15pm]: The second talk will be by Dr. Peter Graven on "Challenges for AI in Healthcare", followed by a Q&A [8:15pm - 9:00pm]: Networking ackosing remarks, and the event conclusion Talk details:Ilya Katsov's talk details:Title: “Customer Intelligence: a Machine Learning Approach"Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss automatic decision-making and AI techniques for customer relationship management. First, we will present a methodology that helps to develop highly automated promotion and loyalty management systems. Next, we will walk through practical examples of how advanced customer and content signals can be generated using predictive models, and how optimization and reinforcement learning techniques can be used for targeting, budgeting, and pricing decisions. This talk is for Data Scientists, Product Owners, and Software Engineers involved into marketing operations or development of marketing automation software and interested in ML-based decision automation techniques.About Ilya Katsov:Ilya joined Grid Dynamics in 2009, and since then has been leading engagements with a number of major retail and technology companies. He is currently managing the Industrial AI consulting practice and is the author of several scientific articles and international patents, and also authored a book, “Introduction to Algorithmic Marketing: Artificial Intelligence for Marketing Operations” (2017)Peter Graven's talk details:Title: "Challenges for AI in Healthcare"Abstract: The use of AI in many industries has revolutionized operations and efficiency. In healthcare the progress is just beginning. Despite the promise of AI, why has the development lagged other industries? What issues are unique to healthcare that create challenges for common approaches? How can data scientists overcome these challenges and deliver on the promise of using data to reach multiple goals of improved quality, decreased cost, and greater patient satisfaction.About Peter Graven:Graven is the lead Data Scientist at OHSU, the lone academic medical center in Oregon. He leads the development and deployment of predictive models in health care delivery operations. He has a PhD in health economics and after spending time researching healthcare policy OHSU, he has devoted his time to applying quantitative approaches (including machine learning and econometrics) to improve the delivery system. Parking Information:There is a a parking garage directly underneath the building and right across the street (you'll need to be on Pine Street to enter both garages).
