An interview on the Emerging Podcast with David Sully, Advai CEO, who draws attention to the failure rates of AI (that nobody likes to talk about!).
With a rich background that includes headhunting and working in the Foreign Office, David shares nuggets of wisdom on how he thinks about building data science teams, what is the most important quality that candidates can demonstrate, and how he builds a culture of effective and open communication, inspired from the ML Ops lifecycle.
He overviews how computer vision systems 'see' differently to human beings. How small filter or texture changes can dramatically change a model's successful identification or classification of something. This difference in input interpretation creates a problem with managing these systems. He discusses the challenge in the context of Advai's ability to detect these vulnerabilites and communicate them to key stakeholders.
