How can we improve the customer experience by tailoring what we display on our pages based on available data? How do we build various data models that helps us innovate different ways to enhance customer experience? What is the relationship to what the customer actually does on the site vs., what they actually buy? How do we do all of this without asking the customer a single question? Sounds fun?
