Predictive Will Be Abuzz at SXSW

Predictive is well on its way to becoming one of the hottest technologies of 2015, so it’s not surprising the topic will be featured at one of the biggest tech conferences of the year – the SXSW Interactive Festival, which kicks off this Friday. On Saturday, we’ll be facilitating a session titled “All Signs Point to Yes – Predictive is Here.”

The panel will be moderated by Ryan Sarver, formerly an early Twitter employee and now a Redpoint Ventures partner who’s making big bets on intelligent applications in the B2B and B2C space. He’ll lead a discussion with our own Vik Singh, as well as Jonathan Foley, vice president of science at Gild, and Karl Rumelhart, vice president of products at Gainsight, about how predictive is making its way into every part of the enterprise.

Here are the details – join us if you’ll be in Austin this weekend!

About: Wouldn’t your company love to own a crystal ball that could actually glimpse the future and help every employee make the best possible decisions throughout the day? Enter predictive analytics. Instead of relying on human intuition, companies can use predictive analytics to enlighten even the seemingly small daily choices that impact each of their operational “funnels” – for sales, recruiting and customers. Today’s predictive technologies let you use data science to factor in thousands of signals about any problem – whether it be increasing revenues, sourcing better candidates, or improving customer satisfaction. With a crystal ball like that, you can look beyond historical data and bring in external data points to make smart decisions and blow past your competition by operating at peak efficiency. In this session, Gild, Gainsight and Infer will take you behind the curtain to explore how next generation apps are using predictive techniques to revolutionize the way companies operate.
