About The Event

Prof. Yoav Goldberg is the research director of AI2 Israel, and also an associate professor of computer science at Bar Ilan University. His research interests include language understanding technologies with real world applications, combining symbolic and neural representations, uncovering latent information in text, syntactic and semantic processing, and interpretability and foundational understanding of deep learning models for text and sequences. He authored a textbook on deep learning techniques for natural language processing, and was among the IEEE's AI Top 10 to Watch in 2018, and a recipient of the Krill Prize in Science in 2017. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University, and spent time in Google Research as a post-doc.

Asi Messica is Head of Data Science (Marketplace) at Fiverr.com. Before joining Fiverr, she held various

product and development management positions at SAP, RSA and more. She pursues her Ph.D. in

Software and Information Systems Engineering at the Ben-Gurion University under the supervision of

Prof. Lior Rokach. Asi holds a B.Sc. in Physics and Computer Science, and MSc in Physics from the Tel

Aviv University, as well as an MBA in Marketing from Bar-Ilan University. Her professional interests

include machine learning, recommender systems, and information retrieval.

In this talk Asi will present how e-commerce vendors can predict consumers willingness to pay (WTP) for different (unpurchased) products by using machine learning algorithms which are based on consumer's online footprint and competitors' pricing. She will demonstrate how this information can be leveraged to increase conversion and optimize promotion effectiveness.

Machine & Deep learning Israel is the most significant community in its field. With more than 13K community members from different backgrounds such as startups, international corporates, academy members and more.
