Machine Learning Applied @ The Speed Of Cloud

It is well evident that we are in the age of big data dominance, exponentially decreasing cost of compute and storage, coupled with the speed of cloud. Many organizations have harnessed this power and are seeking deeper, faster and more accurate understanding of complex data.

Companies are integrating a variety of data from multiple data sources to “fill” their data lake and point the machine to it to detect patterns. These machines apply techniques or ‘models’ to learn from data. These learnings are reapplied and reused in practical ways to solve diverse use cases such as –

  • Recommendations – Personalized marketing
  • Payment Frauds detection
  • Recognition – whether it is for safety reason, e.g. “person of interest” or for identifying common landmarks in social posts & images
  • Genomics – Either to predict specific disease pathways or to determine which treatment will be more effective
  • Route detection and Self driving cars
  • Natural Language Processing – understanding variances in dialect, figures of speech, mannerism, emoticons across omni channel interactions such as – chat, voice, text etc. and providing a meaningful response while continuously learning from interactions.

No surprise here – More and more organizations are seeing the benefits and ML use cases are rapidly evolving. However, at the same time, many organizations struggle to pick up pace in this field. Level of readiness to below questions can help determine how successful your approach and mission to ML is going to be

  • Have you carefully identified and prioritized your target ML Business use cases? Is there a clear statement of the problem space or hypothesis to be explored?
  • Can you ascertain the value, complexity and inter-dependencies for selected use cases before you start investing significant resources – especially when it is not an experimental endeavor?
  • Are Subject matter experts (business context, data science, Technology & Cloud) working together? Or is it a black box exercise?
  • Is the algorithm or “model” being applied appropriate to the problem at hand?
  • How much data is enough to learn?
  • Do you know how the results should be applied? Have you accounted for a potential bias?
  • Can you put the learnings into action in a sustainable and human trustable manner?
  • Etc.

In Nutshell, successful ML implementations require the right blend of Science, Art & Approach. At USEReady, we navigate you through the intricacies of ML Journey and accelerate your adoption and deployment, incrementally and continuously.

Our ML Services include –

1. Strategy, Assessments, Roadmaps & Coaching

You have heard of the ‘Machine Learning’ hype and/or have decided to harness ML capabilities to seek deep insights but looking for credible answers to one or more of below questions.

    • Can I benefit from machine Learning?
    • What changes and is our organization ready for change?
    • How does my org. currently compare to my peer orgs.?
    • Where do we need to be?
    • Which technology to choose & why? – Tensor flow, H2o.ai, PY torch, AWS Sagemaker, Azure ML, Google GCP, other etc.?
    • How can I optimize and leverage cloud for Machine Learning? if so – How?
    • What should be the budget?
    • What’s the business value and ROI?
    • What teams should I engage & when?
    • Do teams know what to do, how & when?
    • How do I ensure security & compliance?

At USEReady, we work alongside and guide you using an accelerated and proven methodology for :

    • ML Readiness or Gap assessments
    • Identifying the most valuable use cases for your business and/or function
