In this session we'll talk about how can you implement powerful personalization for your customers without having to learn machine learning. In the second half of the session we'll look into customizing the technology to make it applicable for your specific use cases followed by a QnA session where we'll have an AMA for attendees. Purnesh Tripathi (https://www.linkedin.com/in/purneshtripathi) is a Data Scientist at AWS, coming to Palmy specially for us. If you'd like to meet with him before, please contact him via LinkedIn. He is also keen for beer after, so you can ask him all the questions there weren't time for during the meetup.
