WHY DO SOME BUSINESSES FAIL AT MACHINE LEARNING?

Why do some businesses fail at machine learning despite its tremendous potential? Is it poor data quality, inability to access the right talent, or failure to get models into production that causes the problem? Or is there a subtler issue? With the potential for AI and machine learning to transform your business, there’s a lot to gain. And there’s a lot to lose if your rivals do it better. In this talk, Cassie will share the many lessons she learned working at Google as the Chief Decision Scientist. Audiences will come away understanding how to build higher-performing teams and operationalize machine-learning projects to deliver business value in production.

Businesses collect more data than one person can understand and evaluate. As information increases, decision-making can become more complex. Every industry is affected by this, from retail to financial services to healthcare. So how can you use decision intelligence to turn information into better actions at any scale? As Chief Decision Scientist at Google, Cassie understands the challenges a business can face. In this lively talk, audiences will learn how to use technology, processes, and people in order to make better decisions at scale.
