Executive Forum: Machine Learning Monetization Strategies

  • Machine Learning First
  • Machine Learning Supported
  • Machine Learning Adopter

  • After the initial presentation, I host the category selection and guided strategy planning workshop.

    Preparing the Unprepared - 'Toxicity in the hiring process'

    There is a toxicity to the hiring process. It is a reflection of the team’s culture. Most of the barriers to profitable machine learning come from toxic teams.
    I hope senior leaders see this because change must come from the top. Clean house and you will see productivity rise. Open teams want to collaborate with the rest of the business. They want to build products not just proofs of concept. Their sense of satisfaction comes from seeing the positive impacts of what they create.

  • The Path to Production for Machine Learning

    Businesses are increasing their reliance on machine learning for revenue and cost savings. Many models fail to make it past the prototype stage. Others fail in production.
    A Path to Production is a familiar concept for traditional technical deployments. However, it is not well understood or implemented for machine learning products. This is the break between model potential and meeting the needs of the business.
