The first Predictive Analytics World is coming to San Francisco on Feb. 18 and 19. It has a great line-up of accomplished speakers. Usama Fayyad (of Yahoo) and Andreas Weigend (formerly of Amazon and a good friend of mine) are keynote speakers. The Netflix Progress Prize winner “BellKor in BigChaos,” whom achieved a 9.63% increase over Netflix’s baseline system, will speak about their system in a case study.
