KDD 2016 - Special Session:

Standards in Predictive Analytics

Special Session on Standards in Predictive Analytics
In the Era of Big and Fast Data

Tuesday, 8/16 - 9:30am-12:30pm in Union Square 15/16

Made possible through SIGKDD's sponsorship of the DMG

As predictive analytics and data mining continue to gain momentum in industry and business applications, open standards provide an essential platform to share predictive models across vendors and to disseminate model-related information within organizations. These standards are a critical element in the operational application of predictive analytics.

Organized by the Data Mining Group (DMG), this special applied data science session on Standards for Predictive Analytics will cover available standards, discuss their adoption, and explore any needs unmet by existing standards. This event forms part of a broader SIGKDD Standards Initiative and will be of particular interest to KDD attendees focused on the operational application of data mining.
