"Translating AI Capabilities Into Better Business Results"


Machine learning is a technique for making predictions, but businesses are broadly struggling to turn these predictions into better big-picture business results. The problem is that data scientists typically do little to rigorously the business rules that they apply to their machine learning processes. This talk shows techniques to use machine learning outputs more efficiently and deliver more bottom-line value from the same predictions.
