Session description

87% of ML projects are eventually not delivered to production. As an ML leader, I know that when productionized correctly ML provides value that other algorithm types can’t, and may turn out as a key differentiator for companies that embrace it. In this keynote, I share my experience with pitfalls that prevent us from delivering ML to production (yes, I have encountered them all) and provide practical approaches on how to avoid them.
