ASOS Uses Machine Learning To Understand Customer Value (For the technically inclined, a full description is in the paper below)

The paper discusses a machine-learning framework that uses embedding in looking across all of product's customer views, and then assigns a value to each customer based on the characteristics of customers who he or she appears close to in product's view sequences. This gives a data output that can help differentiate high value from low value customers. This method results in an uplift in AUC (Area Under Curve), meaning that the system with the learned features was better than the system without learned features at distinguishing between the two classes (high-value and low-value).

Customer lifetime network value: customer valuation in the context of network effects

Nowadays customers are increasingly connected and extensively interact with each other using technology-enabled media like online social networks. Hence, customers are frequently exposed to social influence when making purchase decisions. However, established approaches for customer valuation mostly neglect network effects based on social influence. This leads to a misallocation of resources. Following a design-oriented approach, the paper develops a model for customer valuation referred to as the customer lifetime network value (CLNV), incorporating an integrated network perspective.

Estimating Customer Lifetime Value Using Machine Learning Techniques

With the rapid development of the civil aviation industry, high-quality customer resources have become a significant way to measure the competitiveness of the participating airlines. It is well known that the competition for high-value customers has become the core of airline profits. The research of airline customer lifetime value can help airlines identify high-value, medium-value and low-value travelers. What is more, an airline can make resource allocation more rational, with the least resource investment for maximum profit return.

An Introduction to Predictive Customer Lifetime Value Modeling

This article provides a basic understanding of predictive customer lifetime value modeling. It defines the concept and explains why such models are also called customer equity models. Probabilistic models will help us define these parameters at the customer level and make inferences about future purchases and value. Machine learning and Markov models are also worthy approaches to CLV modeling, but they need to be tweaked and sometimes customized to fit the particulars of a business situation. The Pareto/NBD model focuses on modeling lifetime and purchase count.
