Get started with AI models ai-models

Journey Optimizer allows you to use a trained model system that ranks offers to display for a given profile.

This feature enables you to create different AI models based on your business goals. Using these different goal-based strategies in a decision, the trained model system will help you understand how the different AI models are impacting your goals.

For example, you can select an AI model for the email channel and another one for the push channel. For each channel, the trained model system will leverage multiple data points to determine which offer should be presented first for a given placement, rather than taking into account the offers’ priority scores or a ranking formula.

For now, ranking models are not supported in Journey Optimizer authored channels.

AI model types ai-model-types

Two types of AI models are available in Journey Optimizer:

  • Auto-optimization models aim to serve offers that maximize the return (KPIs) set by business clients. These KPIs could be in the form of conversion rates, revenue, etc. At this point, Auto-optimization focuses on optimizing offer clicks with offer conversion as our target. Auto-optimization is non-personalized and optimizes based on “global” performance of the offers. Learn more

  • Personalized optimization models allow you to define business goals and utilizes customer data to train business-oriented models to serve personalized offers and maximize KPIs. Learn more

Creating an AI model create-ai-model

The main steps to create and use AI models are as follows:

  2. Create an AI model that will leverage events from the dataset to rank offers. Learn more

  3. Configure your offer schema to automatically capture events. Learn more

    note important
    Ranking models require feedback events to be sent in as experience events in order to be collected. Learn more on Decision management data collection
  4. Assign the AI model to a placement in a decision to rank eligible offers. Learn more
