Amy will demo a recent project and discuss how the C3 Platform allows data scientists to focus on machine learning algorithm development.”
“Predictive Maintenance for Aerospace” by Lila Fridley, C3 Product ManagerDescription: “C3 Predictive Maintenance goes beyond traditional rule-based systems by using AI / machine learning to identify aircraft & equipment failures proactively and reduce the frequency of unscheduled maintenance and downtime.”
“AI for Anti-Money Laundering” by Yubing Ji, C3 Forward Deployed Solutions ManagerDescription: “C3 Anti-Money Laundering uses machine learning to create a unified data image of a financial service organization’s customers and transactions to pinpoint money laundering and terrorism financing activities among customers.”
“From Olympic Medalist to Building Great Products and Leading Marketing Strategy” by Merel Witteveen, C3 Vice President of MarketingDescription: “Merel started her career as an Olympic athlete and moved to management consulting, product management, and ultimately marketing.
