Oldies But Goodies: “On AI ROI: The Questions You Need To Be Asking”

As promised in my previous post, here’s a complimentary talk to that one.

Giving this talk was particularly memorable because I was back in the Bay Area, back where I got my data science-in-business start, and back with so many of my first data colleagues. After learning so much from the data community in NorCal, it was a joy to bring them something in return.

To be honest, I was a bit worried that the audience would find this very practical, very look-behind-the-curtain talk too irreverent to the myth of the all-magical, all-fixing data science. But I was delighted to find the talk very well received. In the midst of the data science hype, a bit of bubble bursting and some guidelines for practical oversight seemed to be just what was needed.

Oldie But Goodie: “Building an Effective Project Portfolio”

I’m excited to be getting back into giving talks in person however we’re giving talks these days. But as I’ve gotten back in the circuit I’ve also gotten nostalgic for meeting and mingling with my colleagues.

ODSC / Ai X (formerly Accelerate AI) has always been one of my favorite conferences for its incredible data community. Since I can’t relive the engaging post-talk conversations and coffee breaks, I thought I could at least post the decks.

I gave my first ODSC/Ai X talk in Boston during the spring of 2019. That’s what’s below. The next post will feature a deck from the other coast and the opposite season–but on a complimentary topic.

Looking forward to seeing some of you–though probably only through zoom–sometime soon!
