Conway, NH – April 27th, 2017 – Rapid Insight Inc., a leading provider of easy to use predictive analytics and data blending software, will be hosting a webinar to explore the ethical use of predictive analytics in higher education.

The paper titled: Predictive Analytics in Higher Education: Five Guiding Practices for Ethical Use is stimulating dialogue on this important topic.
“Student retention and enrollment management have become an increasing concern for higher ed organizations in the last few years and predictive models are a vital part of the solution,” stated Joe Viger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Rapid Insight. “We offer software that affords the transparency an institution needs to ensure an ethical approach to predictive analytics but we also want to be part of the conversation on the importance of ethical use of data.”
