Learn the Craft of Matching Sea Crafts
Data / AI / ML, Inspirational, Innovation
Compared to other industries such as hotel booking and flight reservations, the maritime domain has been left behind. At Pick A Pier, we are trying to change it by taking the entire industry forward, providing technological solutions for all the necessities of marinas and skippers in the industry. One of the problems I had to solve was to invent a matching algorithm that matches between boats and berths. As data scientists, we face the challenge to always catch up with the latest research and technology, throughout our career. This important practice may cause our society a huge conflict. On one hand, we would want to implement the most inspiring and sophisticated idea possible, using the most cutting-edge technology. On the other hand, not always the most innovative idea, is the one which suits best the product or the business. In my talk, I'll present the matching algorithm I invented. This unique solution creates the ability to save a spot that best suits each boat!
