[Webinar] Time-Varying Coefficients in PyMC-Marketing | June 26 | 4:00 pm UTC

:studio_microphone: Speaker: Dr. Ulf Aslak Lai| :alarm_clock: Time: 16:00 UTC / 9:00 am PT / 12:00 pm ET / 6:00 pm Berlin | :date: Wednesday, June 26, 2024

To join the event:

Marketing Mix Modeling is a mathematical approach to estimating the effect of marketing on sales. It has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the increasing difficulty of traditional cookie-tracking for marketing attribution. In opposition to tracking-based methods, MMM models the effect of marketing using aggregated data like daily or weekly impressions and sales.

In this session, Dr. Ulf Aslak Lai joins Dr. Thomas Wiecki for a conversation about open-source software for Marketing Mix Modeling (MMM). Ulf will share some background on how he was introduced to the problem and eventually made his way into the community of PyMC-Marketing developers, then present a comprehensive overview of PyMC-Marketing focusing on recent innovations like experiment integration and time-varying coefficients. Thomas and Ulf will discuss the advantage of a Bayesian approach to MMM, and the challenges inherent to the modeling problem, and share some predictions for the future.
