Whether they're data-driven startups or large companies just starting up their advanced analytics, everyone is doing it. These initiatives are often seen as the path to ensuring success in promoting or preventing disruption. Unfortunately, many of these initiatives face obstacles, because they are not embedded within various levels of the organization. This talk will discuss what it means for data science to be embedded within an organization, common failures without such embededdness and steps to ensure success. It will cover lessons learnt from experience working with organizations large and small that are building and deploying complex data-enabled, ML-powered and AI-driven data products. AI’s impact on the PM role and what it means for Data Scientists by Mayukh Bhaowal, Director of Product Management at Salesforce Einstein: There is an evolution in Product Management correlated with the shift from the digital revolution to the AI revolution. As AI and ML eat software, more and more PMs need to level up their skills to manage these products and provide requirements and specifications which will add value to the data engineering and data science teams. This will lead to actually solving customer pain points and not just building a cool technology solution. In addition to working with their traditional cross-functional stakeholders (design, marketing, sales, engineering, dev ops), AI product managers now need to include data scientists and data engineers in the circle. Mayukh Bhaowal discusses the top areas AI product managers and Data Scientists/Data Engineers need to collaborate on, including mapping of business problems to machine learning problems, understanding data and labeled data nuances, defining crisp model evaluation criteria, model explainability, ethics/bias and the distinction between research and production when it comes to AI powered products and features. Speaker bios: Yashas is assisting Dataiku's alliances team as learning content creator, data scientist and solutions architect to enable and grow the partner ecosystem. He has been trained as a population scientist and has completed his Ph.D. at Brown on examining child nutrition in a 20-year longitudinal panel study. Mayukh Bhaowal is a Director of Product Management at Salesforce Einstein, working on automated machine learning and data science experience. Mayukh received his Masters in Computer Science from Stanford University. Prior to Salesforce, Mayukh worked at startups in the domain of machine learning and analytics. He served as Head of Product of a ML platform startup, Scaled Inference, backed by Khosla Ventures, and led product at an ecommerce startup, Narvar, backed by Accel.
