3 Ways to Master Uplift Modeling


The hot topic of Uplift modeling (aka persuasion modeling) is covered in 2 sessions at PAW Business Boston, Sep 27 - Oct 1, and in a article by PAW Founder Eric Siegel.



Uplift modeling, also known as persuasion modeling and true lift modeling, is being adopted rapidly throughout various industries such as marketing, political campaigns and medicine, to name a few. Uplift modeling identifies individuals who are likely to be positively influenced by a treatment. This is a step beyond standard response modeling.

This hot topic is covered across two sessions at Predictive Analytics World for Business at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, September 27 - October 1, 2015 - plus, it is elucidated in an article by PAW founder Eric Siegel:
