Despite the rapid evolution of AI, projects still fail at a disappointingly high rate. In the past, capturing data at scale and building models was the challenge, but today we’re confronted with the issue of making AI more robust while avoiding the risk of unintended consequences. While the tools are new, many challenges remain the same.
In this talk, I will share by way of real-world examples improving business processes at a tier 1 trauma hospital that demonstrate:
- How to build the business case for an AI project (and get buy-in)
- Navigating AI project management to prevent failure
- How to mitigate the risks of unintended consequences from using AI
