On 15 and 16 November 2023, Machine Learning Week is live in Berlin, packed with two days about the newest insights in Predictive Analytics for Business, Industry 4.0 and Deep Learning. In addition, we offer a series of deep dive workshops on the day before the conference.
The conference focuses on the practical application of predictive & prescriptive analytics, machine & deep learning, data & text mining, Generative AI and related topics in business, industry, government, and other verticals, covering analytical and technical as well as economical and organisational questions on strategic and operational levels. Our session formats include case studies, deep dives, keynotes and table discussions.
We provide a regional platform for the European data science community to share their success stories and insights with their industry peers. Our attendees are experienced data scientists, analytics managers and AI visionaries from manufacturing, logistics, marketing, e-commerce, finance and many more sectors.
Don’t miss these two days, that provide the perfect opportunity for in-depth knowledge-sharing, interactive, expert discussions and intensive industry networking! Join the conference or apply for speaking.

What's the relationship between Machine Learning Week, Predictive Analytics World and Deep Learning World?
Machine Learning Week evolved from the Predictive Analytics World (PAW) conferences, which began in 2009, running in multiple cities in Europe and the US each year. From 2018, in response to vendor and attendee requests to have one place they could meet everybody, various vertical conferences (PAW Business, PAW Industry 4.0, PAW Financial, PAW Healthcare), were brought together in one mega-event in Las Vegas. This was met with an overwhelmingly positive reception from all participants. Deep Learning World was also launched as part of the family in 2018 and PAW Climate in 2021.
Machine Learning Week Europe is following the same path, bringing some verticals together.
What is predictive analytics?
Predictive analytics optimizes marketing campaigns and website behavior to increase customer responses, conversions and clicks, and to decrease churn. Each customer’s predictive score informs actions to be taken with that customer — business intelligence just doesn’t get more actionable than that.
Predictive analytics is business intelligence technology that produces a predictive score for each customer or other organizational element. Assigning these predictive scores is the job of a predictive model which has, in turn, been trained over your data, learning from the experience of your organization.
Is predictive analytics different from forecasting?
Machine Learning Week often include select sessions on forecasting since it is a closely related area, and, in some cases, predictive analytics is used as a component to build a forecast model.
However, predictive analytics is something else entirely, going beyond standard forecasting by producing a predictive score for each customer or other organizational element. In contrast, forecasting provides overall aggregate estimates, such as the total number of purchases next quarter. For example, forecasting might estimate the total number of ice cream cones to be purchased in a certain region, while predictive analytics tells you which individual customers are likely to buy an ice cream cone.
Is this a “data mining” conference?
Yes. Data mining is often used synonymously with predictive analytics, and, in any case, predictive analytics is a type of data mining.
Is this a “data science” conference?
Yes. Predictive analytics is a form of data science. Moreover, it is the most actionable form. A predictive model generates a predictive score for each individual, which in turn directly informs decisions for that individual, e.g., whether to contact, extend a retention offer, approve for credit, investigate for fraud, or apply a certain medical treatment. Rather than solely providing insights, predictive analytics directly drives or informs millions of operational decisions.
Is this a “big data” conference?
Yes. Predictive analytics is a key method to truly leverage big data. At the center of the big data revolution is prediction. The whole point of data is to learn from it to predict. What is the value, the function, the purpose? Predictions drive and render more effective the millions of organizational operational decisions taken every day.
Is this an AI conference?
Yes. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad, subjective term with many possible definitions—but by any definition, it always includes machine learning (predictive modeling) as an example of AI technology/capabilities.
Is Machine Learning Week run by a software vendor?
No. Machine Learning Week provides a balanced view of predictive analytics methods and tools across software vendors and solution providers.
Is Machine Learning Week a research conference?
No. Machine Learning Week is focused on today’s commercial deployment of predictive analytics, rather than academic or R&D activities. Separately, there are a number of research-oriented conferences; in predictive analytics’ commercial application, we are essentially standing on the shoulders of those giants known as researchers.
