About PAPIs Connect

PAPIs Connect is a one-day conference that shows decision makers how machine learning is used by companies big and small to solve real-world problems. It features practical presentations of business cases and predictive innovations, by speakers who have used data to deliver an impact on their organizations. They demystify machine learning by explaining how it creates value from data. Some typical examples are: predicting customer needs and actions, task automation, predictive maintenance, priority detection, demand prediction, etc.

PAPIs Connect will also be of interest to technical profiles who implement solutions that leverage predictive technology.

Predictive is the ‘killer app’ for Big Data
