What’s it like to commercialise AI/ML? How do you get leadership teams to approve a data project they might not understand? How do you go from Proof of Concept to Production?

This talk will cover how to bring together technical knowledge in mathematics and statistics with communication, problem solving and creativity to reach business outcomes with AI/ML and Data, including key use cases and projects completed by Blackbook.ai.
