Building Data Science Products? Think Business First!

Agenda

Modern machine learning libraries are both a blessing and a curse. Due to the ease with which the libraries can be used, most users (newbies and practitioners alike) focus too much on tools and techniques.
We will discuss the high-level thinking process of coming up with a machine learning algorithm by asking a business question before even thinking about the tools or technologies.

What you’ll learn

  • Why starting with technology is the wrong approach? Ask a business question and work your way backward
  • Choosing the right machine learning algorithm for your business problem
  • High-level thinking process in conceiving, implementing, deploying, and maintaining a machine learning system
