How can AI become part of our business processes? Should we entrust critical decisions to completely autonomous systems?
Drawing on projects from businesses and UK government agencies, Martin Goodson explains how to increase confidence in AI systems and manage the transition to an AI-driven organization. Along the way, Martin explores the unpredictable nature of artificial intelligence systems and how mastering a handful of engineering principles can help to mitigate the risk of catastrophic failure. You’ll learn the kinds of errors artificial intelligence systems make, how to build systems that protect against common errors, and why evaluation can be much more complicated than it seems.
