AI Seminar Series 2022: Scott Greig

The AI Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in artificial intelligence (AI) can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics can be related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems.

On Dec. 2, Scott Greig, from Willowglen Systems, presented "Why Do Machine Learning Projects Fail?" at the AI Seminar.

Up to 85% of ML projects either fail to be deployed or do not live up to their expected potential. In the critical infrastructure sector there are three key areas of expertise that are needed for success.  The first area is knowledge and expertise in machine learning tools and techniques.  The other two, industrial domain knowledge and operational deployment expertise, are just as important in achieving operational success but are much less frequently considered.  This presentation will discuss the impact of industrial domain knowledge and operational deployment expertise on ML projects using lessons learned from actual ongoing and completed projects.
