MSI Grant for AI Research

A new research grant has been awarded by the Marketing Science Institute (MSI) for their project titled “DeepKeep: Customer Attrition Prevention with Artificial Intelligence”.

Mohamed Zaki (Deputy Director of the Cambridge Service Alliance) and Benjamin Lucas (Assistant Professor at Maastricht University) have been awarded a research grant by the Marketing Science Institute (MSI) for their project titled 'DeepKeep: Customer Attrition Prevention with Artificial Intelligence'. The grant was awarded as part of the MSI Research Initiative on the Digitized Customer, with the initiative task force co-chaired by Cait Lamberton (University of Pittsburgh), and Andrew Stephen (University of Oxford), and involving collaboration with companies including UPS, AbbVie, Vanguard, IHG, Colgate, and Adobe.

The project involves working at the intersection of marketing analytics and machine learning to develop a tool for predicting customer attrition and churn risk from textual data sources such as social media. This means leveraging the intelligent data abstraction capabilities of deep learning, but also improving the training of such models with psycholinguistic theory and practitioner expertise.

Rare-events classification: An approach based on Genetic Algorithm and Voronoi Tessellation

May 31, 2018

by Abdul Rauf Khan, Mohamed Zaki, Henrik Schiøler, and Murat Kulahci. The paper was accepted at 'The 22nd Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD)', a leading international conference in the areas of knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD). In this paper, Mohamed and co-authors propose a novel strategy for data mining based on partitioning of the feature space through Voronoi tessellation and Genetic Algorithm, where the latter is applied to solve a combinatorial optimization problem.
