Big data is changing our world. Given the latest development in AI and Machine learning, there are huge potential we can leverage to transform the Enterprise Applications to be more intelligent and efficient.
At the same time, machine learning is not a magic pill for every issues we have. Like every innovation, we should ask what type of problems it can best address. In this session, we will explain differences in Machine Leaning algorithms, and tools to use.
Our team has been developing and leveraging machine learning products in real life customer environment in last 3 years. In the session, we will talk about our experiences in building up Machine Learning products, experiment, measure and adapt.
You will learn what are the types of machine learning project, product management and agile methods for the teams to improve.

    Thank you for submitting this talk. While I see AI driving a lot of product innovation, this sounds more about team structure than product? Can you tie this more into product innovation? If not, perhaps this talk would fit better with another track.

      Hi Jeremy,

      You are absolutely right. I have adjusted the content and added more related to the product management and innovation in machine learning. Do let me know if you have further update. I will also upload the draft presentation shortly.

      Cheers, Marc

    Workshop
    Advanced

    In this one-day Workshop, Dave Snowden, the creator of the Cynefin framework and famous in the agile community as an inspiring and sometimes controversial speaker, will address agility from the point of view of complexity. Participants will be exposed to a realistic approach that puts context before dogma and shows a future for Agile that goes beyond fighting over methods and towards a sophisticated application of agility in organizations.

    This class will offer an introduction to the Cynefin framework by its creator: the Cynefin framework is a transformational idea that uses a situation-specific approach to making sense of the world in order to act in it, and ensures effective work, decision making, and management even in complex and uncertain environments. For Agile practitioners, this framework supports effectively tailoring methods and practices to different situations. Cynefin-informed methods and practices help Agile organizations harness change and turn complex situations into a competitive advantage for customers and the business.
