Millions of people visit Walt Disney World annually. “Long waits in line” is one of their most frequent complaints.
It’s possible to minimize these visitors’ waits, if you can predict how long the lines will be at any time of day.
In this talk you’ll hear how the team at TouringPlans.com uses statistics, machine learning, and computer science to predict wait times at every Walt Disney World ride, for up to 365 days in advance. You’ll also hear real-world examples of how TouringPlans deals with conflicting – andoften intentionally incorrect – source data when setting up their machine learning systems.
