Join us in Las Vegas on June 16-20 for the largest Predictive Analytics World event to date, Mega-PAW, with seven tracks of sessions covering the commercial deployment of machine learning across industry sectors. The only conference of its kind, Predictive Analytics World delivers vendor-neutral sessions across verticals such as banking, financial services, e-commerce, entertainment, government, healthcare, manufacturing, high technology, insurance, non-profits, publishing, and retail.

Watch PAW Founder Eric Siegel’s Five Reasons to Go to Mega-PAW:

What is the Focus of the Conference?

The conference offers seven tracks across five parallel industry-focused events: 

Business features concrete examples of deployed predictive analytics. Hear how Fortune 500 analytics companies and other top practitioners deploy machine learning, and about the kind of business results they achieve.

Financial Services is the leading cross-vendor event covering the deployment of predictive analytics by banks, insurance companies, credit card companies, investment firms, and other financial institutions.

Healthcare will feature sessions and case studies across Healthcare Business Operations and Clinical applications so you can witness how predictive analytics is employed at leading enterprises, resulting in improved outcomes, lower costs, and higher patient satisfaction.

Manufacturing focuses on real-world industrial examples of deployed predictive analytics. Attend and hear how some of the world’s largest and most forward-thinking manufacturers are tapping the power of predictive modeling to improve business outcomes.

Deep Learning World is the premier conference covering the commercial deployment of deep learning. The event’s mission is to foster breakthroughs in the value-driven operationalization of established deep learning methods. The event achieves this by focusing more on industry applications than on R&D or academic advancement. Commercial projects draw from research projects but are executed to solve specific industrial problems through operational deployment of the models.

This conference delivers case studies, expertise and resources to achieve:

  • Bigger wins: Strengthen the impact of predictive analytics deployment
  • Broader capabilities: Establish new opportunities in data science and machine learning
  • Big data value: Leverage bigger data for prediction and drive bigger value

With a strong case study focus, PAW offers an in-depth look at how teams across diverse industry sectors are using machine learning to solve their most challenging business problems. There is no better way to learn than from concrete case studies presented by top practitioners from leading companies. Learn from the mistakes and best practices of others in your industry.

Elder Research at the Conference

Data underlies all of our best efforts to evolve health care practices. Data, and lots of it, now come in many forms and from many sources. Data is the catalyst for the transition from volume-based, episodic care to value-based, personalized care. A workable data strategy has to account for a variety of data forms and sources. A good data strategy bakes in empathy for each individual represented by the data. And, a great data strategy ensures that any movement of data within the organization is reliable, timely, and makes provision for increased data asset value. Great data strategy is the foundation for improving the delivery and outcomes of our healthcare experience. Gerhard Pilcher will share insights, tips, and lessons learned from more than 20 years of work solving problems and providing guidance to many different types of complex organizations within the health care industry and beyond.
