Implementing Near Real-time Churn Prediction for Games

December 7, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

About the event:

Easily building a Churn Prediction service with Machine Learning solutions

Ever wondered what it takes to keep a user from leaving your game or application after all the hard work you put in? Wouldn’t it be great to get a chance to interact with the users right when they’re about to leave?

As you might know, predicting user churn can be extremely difficult, mainly because most churn happens within the first few minutes or hours of a user’s gameplay. However, churn prediction tools make this task much easier and can provide insights which will help dramatically decrease churn rate.

That’s exactly what we set out to do in our new project — Offer a neat way for developers to discover users who might leave their application or game, and hopefully prevent them from doing so. We decided to collaborate with Upopa — a gaming studio that creates cool games that you should definitely check out – to predict the future actions of their players and ultimately reduce their churn.
