Supervised Machine Learning

Rotman was seeking a way to validate existing online visitor segmentation strategy and a way to test a hypothesis that thought leadership and research are influential factors in student applications

Using Sitecore xDB data and supervised machine learning, Valtech created models that can confidently predict high engagement and conversion, as well as discern deeper visitor behavioural insights.
