USING DATA TO DRIVE SUCCESS

Learn how Zulily and Sounders FC get the most out of their metrics!

On Tuesday, September 10th, Zulily was proud to partner with Seattle Sounders FC for a tech talk on data science, machine learning and AI. This exclusive talk was led by Olly Downs, VP of Data & Machine Learning at Zulily, and Ravi Ramineni, Director of Soccer Analytics at Sounders FC.

Zulily and Sounders FC both use deep analysis of data to improve the performance of their enterprises. At Zulily, applying advanced analytics and machine learning to the shopping experience enables us to better engage customers and drive daily sales. For Sounders FC, the metrics reflect how each player contributes to the outcome of each game; understanding the relationship between player statistics, training focus and performance on the field helps bring home the win. For both organizations, being intentional about the metrics we select and optimize for is critical to success.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the event for a great night of discussion and for developing new ties within the Seattle developer community. For any developers who missed this engaging discussion, we invite you to view the full presentation and audience discussion:
