Webinar Description

Artificial Intelligence represents an opportunity for many start-ups, but incomplete data sets and poorly trained models can do more harm than good. So how do you know where to start an A.I. project, and what pitfalls to avoid – especially when you are scaling a business? Join Echelon DS' Director of Software Engineering and Data Science Jason Vandeventer for the second part of his webinar series on Data Science Essentials for Start-Ups. In this session, All About A.I., Jason will dive into what A.I. is, common use cases, and what is required for it to be successful. Additionally, Jason will walk through examples of when A.I. succeeds and when it fails (sometimes embarrassingly!). Whether your interest is to simply learn more about A.I. or to understand how to use A.I. in your start-up, this discussion is for you.
