Organizational Changes to Improve Machine Learning Success at Your Company

“Even if you don’t drink one bit of the A.I. Kool-Aid and you’re a senior expert practitioner in machine learning, when you’re trying to start a new initiative at your corporation, you’re still very liable to make this extremely prevalent mistake that leads to a lack of deployment. And the mistake is that we all, on some level, are fetishizing the technology.”
–      Eric Siegel
