How do you effectively build and ship a machine learning product?
The trends of big data and cost-effective computing power have given way to an unprecedented focus on developing machine learning algorithms and open source tools, making machine learning more accessible and powerful today than ever.
But building machine learning products is about much more than picking the right algorithm or library. Product managers are vital in not only choosing the right problems to solve, but also shipping solutions that provide a great user experience and foster user trust.
At this event, we explored questions such as:
- What problems are good problems for machine learning to solve?
- What baseline machine learning concepts do you need to know as a PM, and what answers should you bring to the table?
- What are some common pitfalls to look out for?
- How do you measure success, of both the model and the feature?
Hear from experts on the best practices and challenges of shipping ML products across a variety of consumer and enterprise applications.
