Webinar Abstract

Machine learning is the analytics buzz word of the day. While some of the techniques have been around for decades, what has changed is the volume and diversity of data as well as the compute power to find insights in that data faster. That means that machine learning against disparate and big data can be used to get to insight – and fast. Machine learning is being used in predictive analytics in numerous use cases from customer behavior analysis to predictive maintenance to image recognition and more. The value is real and growing.

Join TDWI Research VP Fern Halper and Christopher Orban, VP of Advanced Analytics at Covenant Transportation Group (CTG) to learn more about machine learning. SAP customer Chris Orban will describe how CTG was able to focus on talent development and on-road safety and reduce driver turnover by 15% using machine learning.

You will learn:

  • What machine learning is, how it works and why it is important
  • How machine learning is being used today
  • What the future holds for machine learning applications
  • How CTG was able to reduce driver churn using these techniques
