Learn, Build, and Predict with Einstein AI


Update (July 31, 2020) – Based on feedback from the Trailblazer Community, we’ve decided to extend the contest to Friday, August 14! 

Since we’ve embarked on our journey with Salesforce Einstein a couple of years ago, we’ve been listening to customers, Admins, and users. We’ve heard that you want to build intelligent apps but face many challenges. The general challenges revolve around the things you have to manage in order for your models to run in production. This includes data ingestion, having a team of data scientists to create the models, having the right infrastructure in place to put their models into production and embedding these apps into your business processes.

Luckily, this is where Einstein AI shines! The tools take care of all this work for you and make it easy for admins to build smart experiences with clicks, not code.

In the recent Learn AI with Salesforce event, AI experts showed you how to build a prediction with Einstein Prediction Builder and how to deploy it using Einstein Next Best Action. Now, it’s your turn.

Build a Prediction and Put It Into Action

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of ‘Predict with Einstein Contest’ – the first-ever contest where you’ll be able to build a prediction and submit it for an opportunity to win a prize.

Prizes include:

  • a pair of Apple AirPods Pros AND a one-hour consultation with a Salesforce AI expert for 1st place (15 winners)
  • Hive bluetooth speaker for 2nd place (30 winners)
  • an Einstein plushy for 3rd place (50 winners)
