KC Tung (Microsoft)
Average rating: **...
(2.00, 2 ratings)
KC Tung explains why LSTM provides great flexibility to model the consumer touchpoint sequence problem in a way that allows just-in-time insights about an advertising campaign's effectiveness across all touchpoints (channels), empowering advertisers to evaluate, adjust, or reallocate resources or investments in order to maximize campaign effectiveness.

Jian Wu (NIO)
Jian Wu discusses an end-to-end engineering project to train and evaluate deep Q-learning models for targeting sequential marketing campaigns using the 10-fold cross-validation method. Jian also explains how to evaluate trained DQN models with neural network-based baseline models and shows that trained deep Q-learning models generally produce better-optimized long-term rewards.

Ting-Fang Yen (DataVisor)
Average rating: ****.
(4.00, 1 rating)
Online fraud is often orchestrated by organized crime rings, who use malicious user accounts to actively target modern online services for financial gain. Ting-Fang Yen shares a real-time, scalable fraud detection solution backed by deep learning and built on Spark and TensorFlow and demonstrates how the system outperforms traditional solutions such as blacklists and machine learning.

Ramzi Roy Labban (Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC))
Average rating: *....
(1.00, 1 rating)
Estimating the performance of heavy earth-moving equipment on large construction projects is a complex task that can be riddled with uncertainty. Ramzi Roy Labban details how CCC uses machine learning, leveraging large datasets of actual performance of trucks on construction sites, to more accurately predict future performance and allow the company to make realistic performance assumptions.
