Evolutionary Algorithms have permanently changed the way we use the Internet and listen to music. In fact, EAs are the driving force behind companies like Google, Pandora and Amazon. Now, the science of Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) is being translated across all industries and literally changing the face of innovation.

This complimentary Webinar provides a case study driven seminar will share how leading consumer-driven companies like Dannon, Sprite and Fanta, as well as companies in retail, technology and financial services have implemented EAs to drive higher innovation success rates.
While consumers are not rational creatures, traditional market research often follows an assumption of complete rationality thereby limiting the consumer insights gained through those means. EAs have allowed researchers and marketers to overcome the irrationality conundrum and allow for testing of as many options as they have ideas in a quantitative, projectable manner.
