AI and machine learning have the power to transform entire industries. Companies in consumer facing industries like banking, healthcare, and e-commerce that aren’t using these new tools and advances today run the real risk of failure as we gear towards an automated future.

Dr. Sourav Dey, Head of Machine Learning at Manifold, will talk about the importance for today’s enterprises to adopt ML and data science and how they can do it. Using specific real world use cases, Sourav will detail his 6 step process he calls, “Lean AI” for enterprises to implement AI services to their business. He will start with how to cast business problems as machine learning problems—from identifying which business problem to solve, to hypothesis generation, to AB testing. He’ll explain how to prioritize business value vs. data value, and explain how to transform, segment, and measure variables to obtain meaningful data unique to each company. Finally, he’ll share examples from companies he’s worked with that have implemented the 6 steps and different AI technologies to analyze specific areas of their business and resolve their toughest problems.
