Agenda

Predictive Analytics World for Government Washington, DC 2018

September 17-21, 2018

Pre-Conference Workshop - Monday, September 17th, 2018

8:30 am
Room: Meeting Room 12/13
Workshop

This one-day session surveys standard and advanced methods for predictive modeling (aka machine learning).

Predictive analytics has proven capable of generating enormous returns across industries – but, with so many machine learning modeling methods, there are some tough questions that need answering:
How do you pick the right one to deliver the greatest impact for your business, as applied over your data?
What are the best practices along the way?
How do you make it sure it works on new data?
In this workshop, renowned practitioner and hugely popular instructor Dr. John Elder will describe the key inner workings of leading machine learning algorithms, demonstrate their performance with business case studies, compare their merits, and show you how to select the method and tool best suited to each predictive analytics project.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of the most popular algorithms, including classical regression, decision trees, nearest neighbors, and neural networks, as well as breakthrough ensemble methods such as bagging, boosting, and random forests.
This workshop will also cover useful ways to visualize, select, reduce, and engineer features – such as principal components and projection pursuit. Most importantly, Dr. Elder reveals how the essential resampling techniques of cross-validation and bootstrapping make your models robust and reliable.
Throughout the workshop day, Dr. Elder will share his (often humorous) stories from real-world applications, highlighting mistakes to avoid.
If you’d like to become a practitioner of predictive analytics – or if you already are and would like to hone your knowledge across methods and best practices – this workshop is for you.
What you will learn:
The tremendous value of learning from data
How to create valuable predictive models with machine learning for your business
Best Practices, with real-world stories of what happens when things go wrong
Prerequisites:
The workshop is filled with real-world stories and explanations of methods that are visual and analogy-based, rather than mathematical. Each section is designed to make clear the gist of its concept to a complete novice, and to conclude with intriguing ideas for advanced researchers. Experience has shown that attendees who get the very most out of the course:
Have some experience with programming, or algorithmic approaches to problem-solving
Have taken an introductory course in probability or statistics … but most importantly
Have a problem to solve that inspires and anchors their learning as techniques are introduced

Data science, if judged as a separate science, exceeds its sisters in truth, breadth, and utility.  DS finds truth better than any other science; the crisis in replicability of results in the sciences today is largely due to bad data analysis, performed by amateurs.  As for breadth, a data scientist can contribute mightily to a new field with only minor cooperation from a domain expert, whereas the reverse is not so easy.  And for utility, data science can fit empirical behavior to provide a useful model where good theory doesn’t yet exist.  That is, it can predict “what” is likely even when “why” is beyond reach.

But only if we do it right!  The most vital data scientist skill is recognizing analytic hazards.  With that, we become indispensable.

Avoidable hospital readmissions, where a patient was readmitted for reasons later discovered to be avoidable, are estimated to be a $17 billion annual problem for Medicare. Using automated machine learning and open-source software on a public dataset, we show how to quickly compare, tune, and train several models using cutting edge algorithms. Our predictive model can be used to predict patients who are likely to be readmitted, what factors were important, and hopefully help reduce the financial impact of this problem in the long term.

More and more organizations now understand the potential value of analytics but have yet to see any real savings or efficiencies. Some are even standing up their own analytics teams but still have not yet captured any return on investment.  An independent analytics assessment helps organizations understand any progress they've made while at the same time exposes opportunities to capture more value quickly by making small adjustments and developing a long-term strategy.  In this talk we'll discuss the five most important areas for an organization to assess for unlocking the true value of an investment in analytics.

Join Thomas Davenport as he offers a practical guide to using artificial intelligence for business benefits and competitive advantage. He will cut through the hype of the AI craze and explain how you can put artificial intelligence to work now, in the real world. The business value AI offers is solid rather than sexy or splashy. AI will improve products and processes and make decisions better informed—important but largely invisible tasks. AI technologies won't replace human workers but augment their capabilities, with smart machines to work alongside smart people. AI can automate structured and repetitive work; provide extensive analysis of data through machine learning (“analytics on steroids”), and engage with customers and employees via chatbots and intelligent agents. Government agencies should experiment with these technologies and develop their own expertise. During this session, Tom Davenport will describe the major AI technologies and explain how they are being used, reports on the AI work done by large government agencies, and outline strategies and steps to becoming cognitive.

Graph methods provide a powerful way to represent a network of objects and the relationship or connections between them. Examples include power grids connecting cities, social networks that connect users, and traffic systems connecting roads. The study of networks has also emerged as a means of analyzing complex financial transactions, including those in tax administration. In addition to graph databases for interactive visualization, a diverse set of approaches exists for graph mining, including subgraph discovery and anomaly detection. The continued maturity of tools like R, Python, and Spark, along with distributed computing frameworks, has provided new opportunities to apply graph methods for a wide range of business problems—including those involving massively large data sets. This case study provides a glimpse of how a variety of graph-based approaches are being used at the IRS and discusses lessons learned, business impact, and future direction.

The difficulty of implementing a new data initiatives often goes under-appreciated, particularly the challenges facing most organizations. Deficiencies in organizational readiness and core competence represent clearly visible problems faced by data professional, but beyond that there are common cultural and structural barriers that must be eliminated in order to leverage data effectively. This talk will discuss these barriers—the titular “Seven Deadly Data Sins”—and in the process will also:

- Elaborate upon the three critical factors that lead to data initiative failure
- Demonstrate a two-phase data strategy implementation process
- Explore the sources and rationales behind the “Seven Deadly Data Sins,”

and recommend solutions and alternative approaches

In this manner data investments can be more accurately focused on your organization's strategic priorities. Only when past the prerequisites, can organizations develop a disciplined, repeatable means of improving the data literacy, processes, and supply - the three key elements required to improve data support for strategy. Think of it as a repeatable process for identifying and removing data constraints.

By slowing down and circling around in order to decipher parking signs and avoid tickets, drivers in major cities such as San Francisco cause a lot of traffic jams. These behaviors can potentially endanger the safety of pedestrians and represent a threat on the transportation environment. 

We exploit deep learning techniques to predict parking signs from street-level imagery and find their actual location on a map. Multiple APIs are applied to read and extract the rules from the signs. The resulted map of digitized parking rules along with driver\'s GPS information are used to build products that facilitate parking.

Predictive analytics and choice architecture (“Nudge”) are commonly discussed as separate topics.  But they are best viewed as complementary disciplines.  Insights from the behavioral sciences can often play a helpful – sometimes indispensable – role in deriving economic or societal benefit from an algorithmic solution.  And conversely, big data can help identify whom to nudge, when, and how.  This session will introduce choice architecture, sketch a framework for data science and behavioral science acting as complements, and present a case study that involves lessening improper payments in the public sector.

Pharmaceutical industry operations are a complex network of interrelated business entities. There is an opportunity for fraud at each stage in the manufacturer/supplier-to-prescriber-to-dispenser-to-consumer distribution chain, and there are many known fraud schemes. We focused on the prescriber-dispenser-consumer end of the chain, and in particular, on schemes involving controlled prescription drugs.

Creating features from heuristics (domain experts) and deduction (graph analytics), which we employed in machine learning models, we developed a tool that can detect prescriber fraud schemes such as collusions, negligent prescribing and pill mills.

We all tend to think our newly-minted models are well-designed, based on expert knowledge, and acme's of predictive power. Experience, however, teaches us that models won't perform as well in production as their initial promise might indicate. This course will walk through the approaches we should take to model testing in order to have the best idea of how well they will perform in the real world, and to be confident that they will serve their purpose. Topics will range from hold-out test sets and cross-validation, to target shuffling and posterior predictive checks, as well as leaks from the future.

Plenary Session:

Government organizations of all types and sizes struggle with recruiting and retaining talent throughout their ranks. From resume screening to retainment bonuses, there is no shortage of decisions to be made throughout the life cycle of an employee. Recent advances in Automated Machine Learning (AML) have enabled human resource managers to make these decisions in a more data driven manner. The ability to automate much of the technical overhead preventing human resource managers to implement predictive analytics themselves has largely been removed. This presentation will summarize the major opportunities for predictive analytics in the human capital space, share some lessons learned from implementing AML in support of workforce analytics, and provide keys to success for implementing AML for departments new to predictive analytics.

At the NFA, a regulatory body for the US derivatives markets, we have thousands of firms to monitor, but limited resources to do so. Over the past 4 years we have built a predictive modeling program to help solve this problem by identifying which firms pose the most risk. Over this time we have learned many important lessons, and the most important ones have little to do with picking which algorithm to use. This session will discuss practical tips that data scientists can apply to their own modeling projects covering model construction, model evaluation, data integrity, and others topics.
