Practical Approaches to Training Data Strategy

Summit Track: 
Technical Insights I

Recent McKinsey research cites the top five limitations that prevent companies from adopting AI technology. Training data strategy is a common thread. Companies face challenges obtaining enough AI training data, developing strategies for robust data quality and ensuring that bias does not occur. Are you struggling to get results from your algorithm due to an inefficient training data strategy? In this presentation, you will learn best practices for developing a training data strategy so your algorithms perform as intended. We'll discuss how to define effective training data rules and how to evolve these rules as your algorithm learns. We'll explore how to determine how much training data you really need, and how to diversify your data set to cover edge cases and avoid bias. Finally, we'll explain how to understand where your organization sits on the training data maturity continuum.
