Big data is transforming every aspect of society – what impact will it have on the world of sales?

At LeadGenius we've been working on the problem of automating sales activities using big data, machine learning and crowd computing. I'll share how we're attacking three problems in data science as they relate to building artificial intelligence for sales. First, we'll talk about the problem of predicting purchase decisions – sometimes, before they ever happen. Second, we'll talk about the problem of tracking and understanding every person and company in the United States and what they're going to need to buy next. Last, we'll talk about our latest challenge – building machine intelligence that can communicate naturally over email in a way that's indistinguishable from a salesperson.
