While the past few years have seen a dramatic growth in the number of for-profit enterprises attending conferences like NIPS and ICLR, AI remains a heavily academic-centric field. Now is the time for us to set a framework for how to move AI from the classroom, from the research lab, and from the “horizon 3” innovation team into the mainstream: large-scale core business operations.
Jana Eggers demonstrates how to deliver on an AI project for business, walking you through defining your project, setting expectations, assembling your team, hunting for data, assessing capabilities, implementing it, and rinsing and repeating.
