Customer Forecasting & Valuation owns the primary decision metrics at Amazon, leveraging causal machine-learning models to predict the long-term (downstream) impact of customer actions and business decision. These metrics form the foundation of decision taken by an exponentially increasing number of decision makers, both humans and systems, on a day to day basis. Inferences produced by our systems are used both in real-time systems (such as ads bidders and content recommendation systems) as well as in financial planning activities. In order to serve the wide variety of and rapidly evolving decision contexts throughout Amazon, our models have to work with an ever-increasing volume and complexity of data and at the same time provide inferences with reliability and low-latency. Engineering robust large-scale Machine Learning Systems presents some unique challenges such as reproducibility and explainability of results, agility and experimentation to evolve rapidly, no-loss translation from experiments to production. We in Customer Forecasting & Valuation are working to tackle these problems as we evolve the next generation of Causal Machine Learning Systems.
