The Machine Learning Manifesto of Cultural Primitives for Engineering Teams in Traditional Organizations
About the Book
In this experience-based account, Jean Voigt describes cultural, organizational and critical technical aspects for consideration when building artificial intelligence and machine learning teams. Covering a broad area from, legal, technical data and model management to leadership and people management aspects the book provokes to take a step back and reflect. Each chapter includes a comprehensive reading list to further dive into specific topics in more detail. The extend of recent research material combined with Jean's leadership experience enables executives and engineers to improve their AI and ML initiatives and increase the odds of successful completion.
