Building AI Products: Delivery Vs Discovery
Building AI Products: Delivery Vs Discovery


I will discuss the challenges in building real world AI products in today's enterprise environment, and, in particular, the tradeoffs between "Discovery vs. Delivery." It seems every company today wants AI; but plug-and-play AI offerings are far and few between. I will describe the balance between the R&D necessary to create bespoke products and get them working within existing IT deployment environment. Topics will include cultural differences between IT and AI, how to scope a successful R&D project, data mining vs product development, model governance, existing deployment solutions, and testing.
