Responsible Data Science at AI & Big Data Expo

While AI continues to evolve at a rapid pace—adoption rates growing day over day—projects still fail at a disappointingly high rate.

In the past, capturing data at scale and building models was the challenge, but today we’re confronted with the issue of making AI more robust while avoiding the risk of unintended consequences. While the tools are new, many challenges remain the same.

During his AI & Big Data Expo session, Pandata CEO and AI Strategist, Cal Al-Dhubaib, shared: 

  • Building blocks to develop requirements for AI-driven projects.
  • Examples of identifying and mitigating project risks and unintended consequences.
  • How to build the business case for an AI project (and get buy-in).
