Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are some of the most talked-about technologies today - but for many organizations, AI and ML only reside in a lab setting. In order to get AI and ML into production and out of the lab, teams need to establish protocols for AI management, operations, and governance - all priorities that need to be set at an organization-wide level. In this session, Irina will discuss how to accelerate your AI initiatives and get them into production, as well as how companies have deployed and implemented their AI initiatives to do the impossible - for example, allowing one of America’s leading telecom operators to cut down the time to map network coverage in the state of California from several years to under an hour.
