Einstein Prediction Builder: How to Turn Your Idea Into a Prediction

Being an #AwesomeAdmin is all about delivering business value with technology that makes our end-users’ lives easier and helps our organizations run more efficiently. Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) can help you, as an admin, deliver these results in more impactful ways than ever before. Einstein Prediction Builder makes it easy to create a custom prediction for your business. You don’t have to worry about ETL-ing your data, data wrangling, or picking which algorithm to use or tuning its parameters. Even better, you don’t have to worry about the infrastructure to run these models in production, model retraining over time, or how to integrate the predictions back into your business processes in Salesforce. Once set up, training and scoring happen automatically behind the scenes. And, the predictions are available on a custom field on the object where your data is stored.

Skip the Infrastructure, Get Straight to Development

It’s a skill that can take years to hone. The tools that developers use can be foreign to other folks. Things like “the CLI” or “IDE’s” or “git”. Like any other specialization, developers speak their own language, and over the decades have developed tools that are aimed at their use case.

Also, the craft of development is hard. If you think about it, we are writing step by step instructions for computers to execute. We are pretty darn close to running at the bottom of the stack, right?
