The AI Playbook – A new book

Share

There’s huge potential in AI, yet far too many AI projects fail to deliver meaningful business value. The technology works, the team has skills, the data is available – and yet it never comes together. To address this critical issue, Eric Siegel has just published The AI Playbook: Mastering the Rare Art of Machine Learning Deployment. In The AI Playbook, Eric has distilled years of experience and a ton of great advice into an easy-to-follow roadmap for success.

Even before its release, the book hit the #1 slot on Amazon’s top 100 Hot New Releases in Technology. Fast Company said “An antidote to overheated rhetoric of all-powerful AI… helpfully lays out the key steps to deploying the technology we’re now all obsessed with.” while The Forecast said it “Separates AI fact from AI fantasy.”

Eric’s approach – BizML – puts deployment and business value at the heart of machine learning and artificial intelligence projects.  Like Eric, I see a focus on the business problem – what I call the decision and Eric calls the deployment goal – as the essential first step. We’re also both big believers in making sure you deploy the model into business operations and focus on continuous improvement. Eric’s book does a great job of outlining where these steps fit and illustrates the whole with some compelling story. If you’re interested, there’s more information, including a nice cheat sheet for the approach at http://www.bizML.com but you should really just buy the book.
