The Sessions:

Making your ML / AI production ready

Do you know 3 out of 5 ML / AI engagement do not go to the production or can not operate in a enterprise production eco system. In this session we ll discuss about, what it takes to be production ready and how to avoid those pitfalls with some techno-functional example of the industries. 

“Why AI/ML projects are different”

The interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence has exploded over the last couple of years, and the availability of tools, techniques and research are at an unprecedented high. Plenty of tutorials on how to use all kinds of techniques are easily accessible through a simple web search, and in-depth online learning is available free of charge.

However, even if the technology has made significant leaps, and access to it is easier than ever before, AI/ML projects often have a considerable amount of friction – in most cases due to different topics than in traditional software development. Fundamental topics like definitions of a successful project, project activity breakdowns and effort estimations are all turned upside down, in a world much closer to research than development. The session will go through some of the fundamental building blocks of AI/ML projects and highlight some of the key challenges from a project perspective, with real world examples to learn from.
