Abstract: While there is a lot of pressure on business leaders to leverage machine learning in their areas, there isn't a clear framework of how these leaders should decide on which ML projects to invest in and which ones not to invest in! This is a key reason why many ML project get left mid-way and many others don't show ROI post implementation - even after thousands of human hours have been put into them. In this session, you, as a business leader, will learn 5 questions that you must answer in deciding which ML project to invest - from prioritization to measuring real impact. I'll also share my experience seeing ML projects in action, driving real value, with use cases covering various industries.
