As AI becomes more advanced and engrained in our lives, it is normal to ponder its various business applications.

There is potential for AI & Machine Learning (ML) to be useful in demand forecasting – but does it actually work in practice, or only in theory? Recent forecasting research suggests that ML can be used to improve your forecasting.

In this free one-hour webinar Sarah Darin will provide an overview of how a Machine Learning algorithm like the one implemented in Forecast Pro works, and discuss the benefits of its application in demand forecasting.

During this one-hour webinar you will learn:

• The basics of Machine Learning powered forecasting

• When ML is likely to improve your forecasts

• How to use the completely automatic ML option in Forecast Pro

• How to build custom ML models in Forecast Pro

This session accommodates time zones in the Asia Pacific Region. Can’t attend the live webinar? Register for the session and we will notify you via email when the recording is available for on-demand viewing.
