We will analyze the behavior and context of all users to predict the most of their research intention at a given time. This is reflected, for example, by a push “appropriate” email, content, product, promotion or special message.
Customization is progressively modeled by a “Automatic learning machine” (or Machine Learning) from data.
In principle, there is a class of mathematical algorithms such as regression, clustering, decision trees and artificial neural networks used to extract predictive models.
The goal for the machine and the marketing is to improve the likelihood of delivering the right message to the right person at the right time. Of course, a well-built customization results in a significant increase in conversions and retention.
