Bruce Tannenbaum, Technical Marketing Manager for AI applications at MathWorks, presents the "Three Key Factors for Successful AI Projects" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

AI is transforming the products we build and the way we do business. AI using images and video is already at work in our smart home devices, our smartphones and many of our vehicles. But despite some clear successes, AI projects fail 85% of the time, according to Gartner. Fortunately, the industry is rapidly accumulating experience that we can learn from in order to find ways to reduce risk in AI projects.

In this talk, Tannenbaum presents three key factors for successful AI projects, especially those using visual data. The first factor is incorporating domain expertise into the design of the AI solution, rather than relying purely on brute-force application of generalized algorithms. The second success factor is obtaining the right quantities and types of data at each stage of the development process. The third factor is creating AI workflows that enable repeatable and deployable results. He illustrates the importance of these factors using case studies from diverse applications including automated driving, crop harvesting and tunnel excavation.
