  • Pecan's Predictive Chat and Predictive Notebook streamline the model-building process for businesses of all sizes.
  • By leveraging predictive analytics, businesses can make informed decisions to improve customer retention, optimize marketing campaigns, forecast sales, or many other proactive use cases.
  • Try Pecan for free to harness the power of machine learning and transform your data into predictive insights.

Imagine holding a ball in your hand. Without much thought, you know exactly what will happen if you let go: it will fall. 

This simple prediction is based on countless similar experiences you’ve had since childhood. But have you ever considered how this concept parallels the way machine learning (ML) operates?

Machine learning models, much like our understanding of gravity, rely on historical data to make predictions. They observe patterns from the past and apply these insights to new, unseen situations. 

However, for many businesses, harnessing machine learning to predict future outcomes feels as complex as quantum physics.

Predicting the Future: You’re Already Doing It!

Predicting a ball’s fall is intuitive because our brains are wired to recognize patterns based on past observations. But this isn’t the case when you’re trying to figure out more complex use cases, like predicting customer churn or LTV. In machine learning, this process is mirrored by feeding models vast amounts of historical data, enabling them to predict future events with remarkable accuracy.

But what if you could build a predictive model in just 20 minutes, rather than needing a lifetime’s worth of observations?

This is the promise of Pecan: a platform designed to simplify the complex process of data science for predictive analytics, making it accessible to businesses of all sizes.

The “Magic” Behind Pecan's Predictive Analytics

Pecan streamlines the model-building process through a user-friendly Predictive Chat, which interacts with users to understand their specific use case and data requirements.

This innovative approach is like having a conversation with a data scientist who’s keen on organizing your data and defining your question and predictive model effectively.

Pecan’s Predictive Chat makes conceptualizing your predictive model as intuitive as a conversation.

The process begins with creating an SQL-based Predictive Notebook that organizes your data (even if it's messy) and serves as the foundation for your model. This notebook outlines the core set table (the main dataset required for training your predictive model), detailing who or what the model is about, when predictions need to be made, and what the expected outcomes are. Whether you want to predict a ball dropping, a helium balloon floating away, a customer churning, or any other event, the principle remains the same.

Next, Pecan develops an attribute table that captures all relevant information about each event or sample. In the case of a falling object, the table would include details such as the type of object, its weight, and environmental factors. This comprehensive data allows Pecan’s ML models to identify patterns and make accurate predictions about future events.

Bringing Predictive Analytics to Real Life

Let’s translate this to a real-world scenario: predicting customer behavior. Imagine replacing the ball with a customer who has just signed up for your app. The moment the ball is released is akin to the day after they signed up, and you’re predicting whether they will convert into a paying customer.

This is not just about dropping balls; it's about leveraging historical data to make informed predictions that can significantly impact your business strategy and bottom line. Pecan demystifies machine learning, turning complex data into actionable insights.
