Precision Measurements in eCommerce
The amount of data captured worldwide is growing at an unprecedented speed. For retail companies, this represents an infrastructure as well as a modeling challenge. However, it is also an opportunity to identify much more subtle signals hidden in a mass of data. Jennifer will showcase how precision measurements will allow companies like Walmart to deliver a more personalized experience through the combination of big data and hard science.
Jennifer Prendki's original area of expertise is particle physics, a field aiming at measuring subtle signals through the analysis of vast amounts of data. Before joining the eCommerce industry, she worked as a data scientist both in the financial and advertising industry. She also worked at Ayasdi developing machine intelligence tools, where she acquired a strong understanding of data-oriented problems in all kinds of different industries. She currently leads a team of data scientists and machine learning engineers - all obsessed with numbers - whose common goal is to provide precise measurements in the context of Search at @WalmartLabs.
