Invoice Payment to Optimize Cash Collection
Predicting invoice payment is valuable in multiple industries and supports decision-making processes in most financial workflows. This work presents a prototype developed as a solution devised during a partnership with a multinational bank to support collectors in predicting invoices payment. The proposed prototype reached up to 83.5% of accuracy, which improved the prioritization of customers and supported the daily work of collectors and we expect to support researchers dealing with the problem of invoice payment prediction to get insights and examples of how to tackle issues present in real data

Where are the gains: Should I use A/B Tests for forecasting?
In this talk, we will analyze some theoretical aspects related to the results of an A/B test, in scenarios where Machine Learning models are involved. We will discuss the risks of taking results of an A/B test, or other purely comparative methodology, as a prediction of future gains. We will review the main practical and theoretical differences between A/B test and forecasting, when conducting ML related projects. This discussion targets a mixed audience, embracing people from technical and business areas. Also, it will be illustrated with real world examples taken from actual A/B tests.

I know what you did last session: clustering users with ML
Understanding user behaviour is one of the main challenges of any company. In this presentation, we’ll talk about how we explored users’ activity to find common patterns among them in three important moments of the customer journey. Through our experience with this project, we hope you’ll learn a bit about how to select the right data to analyze, how to find out which data actually matters, what are the challenges facing unsupervised learning algorithms in real life, how to check if your results make sense, and how you can use the power of storytelling to communicate results.

Using Machine Learning to recommend jobs in User Cold Start
Industry still struggles to design recommenders able to provide useful recommendations for users who have not interacted with any item (User Cold Start scenario). In this talk, we will show how to connect new candidates to their desired jobs in one of the main online employment marketplaces in Latin America. The solution involves, first, modeling user and item profiles based on content features and then using Machine Learning to predict interactions between them. A / B testing evidenced the proposed solution is able to enhance user engagement.

A Clinical Application of Deep Learning for NLP with Word-Embeddings
Clinical coding represents the transposition of clinical findings and diagnostics into codes contained in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). To perform such task, hospitals assign the role of “clinical coder” to the person responsible for reading the whole clinical documentation and assigning the ICD codes accordingly. This research aims to present a deep learning framework for natural language processing (NLP) capable of automating this task by interpreting (and further classifing) the text contained within these documents, by using "self-taught" word embeddings (learned from the database itself) as input.

Time Series Forecasting for Cloud Resources Provisioning
Forecasting cloud resources consumption is one of the main challenges faced by IT operations teams in capacity planning tasks. Those teams often should make predictions for periods with no corresponding previous data whose cloud transactions activity changes, for instance, on a holiday. In this talk, it is discussed an approach which is able to model this future behavior with synthesized data. The procedure uses small samples to synthesize data to fit a time series forecasting model which applies interpretable parameters to be adjusted by domain knowledge analysts.
