A Machine Learning Tool Without The Infrastructure Costs: An Overview Of Genius

With all the possibilities it presents, machine learning is on many a company’s to-do list for 2018. You could determine the optimal time and number to reach prospects and debtors on, improve cross-sell and upsell rates by offering the perfect next product at the perfect time or you can know when to give which customer a discount or special offer to prevent churn. But the costs of implementation of a machine learning tool in just one business area is high.

With Genius Machine Learning as a Service, you remove infrastructure costs, making it the go-to machine learning tool for business-users.

Will Your Machine Learning Models Pass The William Tell Test?

Machine learning models can be used very successfully in many different contexts to predict outcomes for different use cases accurately. These predictions can be used within the business to make better decisions or to operate more efficiently (or both) and can give you an edge over your competitors. Predictive models all follow the same recipe – i.e. train a model on historical data and then apply this model to unseen data to get predictions. If your model generalises well, you have a prediction that you can trust and use to decide "do this, not that" with some degree of accuracy.
