Telling Personalized Data-Driven Stories from Genetics and Family History

My story is unique to me: Who were my ancestors, who am I related to, and what does my family need to know to create a healthy future? Likewise, your story is unique to you. At AncestryDNA, we have leveraged the power of data to tell personalized unique stories to over 15M customers. I will share how we integrate genetics and family history using data science and applied machine learning methods to generate these personalized data-driven stories at scale.
