Predictive Analytics World is the business-focused event for predictive analytics professionals, managers and commercial practitioners. This conference delivers case studies, expertise and resources to achieve two objectives:

1) Bigger wins: Strengthen the business impact of predictive analytics deployment

2) Broader capabilities: Establish new opportunities with predictive analytics

The Top Experts:

PAW 2009's program is packed with the top predictive analytics experts, practitioners, authors and business thought leaders, including keynote speakers Usama Fayyad, Ph.D. (Yahoo!'s Chief Data Officer & Executive VP), Andreas Weigend, Ph.D. (former Chief Scientist at Amazon.com), and Program Chair Eric Siegel, Ph.D. (President of Prediction Impact and former Columbia University professor).

Case Studies: How the Leading Enterprises Do It

Predictive Analytics World focuses on concrete examples of deployed predictive analytics. Hear from the horse's mouth precisely how Fortune 500 analytics competitors and other top practitioners deploy predictive modeling, and what kind of business impact it delivers.

Come to this inaugural event to see over 20 speakers and case studies from leading enterprises such as 3M, Acxiom, Affiliated Computer Services, Amazon.com, Charles Schwab, Chase, Google, The National Rifle Association, Reed Elsevier, Linden Labs (Second Life), Sun, Wells Fargo, and Yahoo! -- and hear the number one Netflix Prize competitor reveal their secret sauce.

Cross-Industry Applications:

Predictive Analytics World is the only conference of its kind, delivering vendor-neutral sessions across verticals such as banking, financial services, e-commerce, entertainment, healthcare, high technology, insurance, non-profits, publishing and retail.

And PAW covers the gamut of commercial applications of predictive analytics, including response modeling, customer retention with churn modeling, product recommendations, online marketing optimization, behavior-based advertising, email targeting, insurance pricing and credit scoring.

Why bring together such a wide range of endeavors? No matter how you use predictive analytics, the story is the same: Predictively scoring customers optimizes business performance. Predictive analytics initiatives across industries leverage the same core predictive modeling technology, share similar project overhead and data requirements, and face common process challenges and analytical hurdles.
