X Topic Abstract

How can Organizations believe in business analytics when it has so much uncertainties? Should analytics be centralized within an organization or should it be imbibed into the mind and soul of every employee? We have already invested in data warehouse and business intelligence and we are quite mature in our analytical process, but where do we go next?

Business Analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence or Data Science has seen its share of success and failure with hype within organizations. Companies are moving to data driven or data enabled decisions while trying to overcome the hurdle of data intimidation.

As part of this session, we like to share our approach on working with organizations with a top-down approach on how to factor in analytics as part of their innovation cycle. Understand opportunities to debate, whether its sales, operational or customer satisfaction. Understand the need for data strategy for sourcing, sampling and transformation. Identify hotspots and fail early and start over.

X Topic Abstract

We see recommendation systems all around us. Amazon and other e-commerce companies recommends items/goods that we are likely to buy based on our past behavior. Netflix suggests what videos we can watch. Pandora even builds our personalized music streams, based on what we are likely to listen. Almost every website has (or ideally, should have) a recommendation system based on user browsing history, past purchases, past searches and preferences. It turns out most existing recommendation systems are based on three paradigms

• Collaborative Filtering (CF) and its variants - either model-based or memory based CF, based on ratings given by users to items.
• Content-based recommendation engines - based on information about features of items.
• Hybrid recommendation engines - combining content based and CF or exploiting more information about users in content based recommendation.

There are three desirable properties of recommendation systems:

• Accuracy – must be close to what the user is likely to pick/read/watch/click.
• Sparse data handling - Many users may never have rated any items, so system must figure out what to recommend to those users. Another issue with respect to users is that some users may be "Gray Sheep" - implying they do not fit into the segmentation/categorization of users and have distinct characteristics.
• Avoiding cold start - how can new items (that have never been rated) be recommended.
• Scalability - algorithms must scale to large number of items/users without too much degradation in performance.

The memory-based CF systems are highly scalable, but may suffer from cold start and data sparsity problems. Model based CF systems such as the Naïve Bayes recommendation engine [1] often outperform memory-based CF systems with respect to accuracy. The matrix factorization based recommendation systems, which can be seen as the most advanced ones, have the best accuracy, but may suffer from performance degradation issues at extreme scale.

Many content based recommendation systems use reviews and text analytics of the reviews to understand user’s preference and consequently, able to avoid items which users have condemned or criticized. These are limited in that they treat reviews as bag-of-words and may lose contextual information. They also suffer from scalability issues. Most content based recommendation engines also need hand-crafted features resulting in excessive manual labour for recommendation. Content based recommendation engines also tend to get struck in what is known as a "well of similarity" [2], where the items form a restricted theme scope.

Deep Learning Based Recommendation Engines

Previous work in using AI to build recommendation engines include [A] where the authors used a two layer Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM) to model user ratings in a CF environment. This was able to handle large number of ratings/users and also help in capturing hierarchical latent factors of users and items. However, this still has the disadvantage that it does not make use of content and hence suffers from cold-start issues.

[3] is the other prior work which builds a collaborative deep learning model to understand review texts or content using a Bayesian Stacked Denoising Auto Encoder (SDAE). It also has several short comings including the fact that it uses bag-of-words to represent review text – this may result in loss of semantics as word orderings may be important. Further, semantically similar reviews using different words may also not be treated as similar.

We have built a recommender system based on intent prediction using deep learning for an e-commerce client building on some ideas from [4]. The intent of this talk is to motivate the need for deep learning based recommendation systems and to explain how we have built one such system. Key takeaways for the audience include:

1. Introduction to deep learning - different networks such as RBMs, Conv nets, auto-encoders.
2. Introduction to recommendation systems - why deep learning is required for hybrid systems as well as how different deep learning networks such as conv nets or RBMs can be used to build hybrid recommendation systems.
3. end-to-end view of recommendation and learning to rank systems on TensorFlow including model management and scaling.

X Topic Abstract

Data is the new resource of modern time, that is available to every organization. Some get it as a part of its enterprise data collection process while others put an elaborate data collection plan to collect it. In some sense, data has the traits of a perishable good. If not used on time or within a prescribed time duration, it’s value diminishes to dust. Imagine this, it takes 25 % of the acquisition cost to retain an existing customer. How do you keep your existing customers engaged with you especially when they have every information about competing products and offerings at their finger tip.

Customers do not like to give proactive feedbacks on what they like or dislike. Besides, disgruntled customer would often churn out even before you got enough time to course correct yourself. Customers are our compass. They give us a sense that we are headed in the right direction. How do we know if our customers are having good experience from our product and services. How do we know which customers are at risk of churning out. It is only when every company can get visibility of customer expereince through Analytics

X Topic Abstract

The latest projections put out by the UN population division suggest that India's population, currently estimated at 1.34 billion, is projected to rise to 1.51 billion by 2030 and further to 1.66 billion by 2050 before declining to 1.52 billion by century end. Food systems are central to human societies. Can we rely on them to feed 1.5 billion people in 2030 nutritiously and sustainably?

The world is increasingly volatile – 2016 alone was full of surprises. What unexpected events might take us down unforeseen paths in the future?

Food systems are integral to the health of people and the sustainability of the planet. Developing inclusive, sustainable, efficient, nutritious and healthy food systems will be essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Currently, nearly half of the India's population does not eat a properly nutritious diet.

The agriculture sector is a significant contributor of greenhouse gases, deforestation and water scarcity. In some regions, up to 40% of food is lost or wasted. The volatility of weather events and food prices are growing. An observer focused entirely on the challenges in food systems might say "the future is bleak"; whereas one focused on innovations to meet the SDGs might say "the future is bright".

Looking at the positive picture, India is the world’s 2nd largest producer of fruits and vegetables. The government expects the processing in this sector to grow by 25 per cent of the total produce by 2025. India is the largest producer of milk in the world. But it will be challenging to feed 1.5 billion people in 2030. We will need to bring innovative technologies in farming and food processing industry so as we can demand the current and future demand.

At the conference, I will speak about various digital trends that are shaping the future of food industry. The use of technologies like data science and artifical intelligence is shaping the industry by removing the guess work out of farming. We will look at the how making smart farms a reality through precision farming and increasing farm productivity through unexpected data partnerships.

I will present several examples that will demonstrate how the agricultural industry is pursuing the audacious goal of "ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture." The future of agriculture lies in smart farming and digital transformation, with systems of intelligence including cloud computing, big data platforms, IoT, predictive analytics and other new capabilities.

X Topic Abstract

A US based mid-sized Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) that operates in a niche market segment, wanted to leverage the power of advanced data analytics to optimize their business actions for marketing efficiencies and risk management. The NBFC is in the business of extending credit (in the form of personal loans) to the customers who are indexed high in terms of consumer credit risk.

To achieve this, a business integrated advanced analytics and machine learning approach was adopted to design a solution that entailed identification of the right prospects for targeting, leading to optimization of marketing and operational cost. This also mitigated the long-term credit losses incurred from customers who have the tendency to default on loan.

Consumer credit bureau (CCB) data was used for building the solution. An ensemble solution approach was undertaken that involved innovative feature extraction, dimensionality reduction and application of advanced statistical and machine learning techniques. Although the solution was custom made for the NBFC, the design turned out to be repeatable, scalable and customizable for similar business objectives in the consumer lending space. Techniques such as Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Variable Clustering, and Information Value were used for dimensionality reduction to arrive at an optimum set of attributes. This was followed by building an ensemble machine learning solution that involved response and risk segmentation using techniques such as CHAID and modeling using techniques such as Logistic Regression. Sampling, in-time, and out-of-time validation ensured robustness and reliability of the solution. The solution improved the customer response rate by 40%, decreased the cost per acquisition by 20% and significantly mitigated the over-all credit risk of the portfolio.
