A business-level introduction to AI — Louis Dorard

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are becoming increasingly accessible. Starting from example use cases, I’ll aim at demystifying how they work and how they improve businesses in 3 areas: increasing the number of customers, serving them better, and serving them more efficiently. I’ll show how machines can use data to automatically learn business rules and make predictions, that can then be used to make better decisions. I’ll introduce the main concepts of ML, its possibilities, its limitations, and I’ll give tips on framing the right problems for your company to tackle.
