Topic: The Evolution of “AI Thinking”: From AI Models to AI Systems
Details to be covered:
- Here we will highlight the “breadth” of algorithms out there in AI/ML
Why we need so many different varieties of models
The need to start thinking about an “AI Ecosystem” not as a “Collection of Models” but as a “System of Models” that feed into each other
Tie this to problems in EdTech, Fleet Management, Driverless cars, and Enterprise applications
For New Folks:
- this talk gives them a birds eye view of the different classes of AI models and why they need to learn enough of them to become useful as Data Scientists
For Data Scientists:
- this talk gives them the next level of thinking where they now know the various modelling tools but don’t know how to put them together to build a complex AI system
