3 Steps to Start Your AI Journey

AI projects have many more unknowns than traditional technology projects. You have to know the right use case to start with and know the value you can expect even before you start. You need to understand what data sources to go after and how to get the data ready. You have to pick the right model to meet expected performance goals. Train it, test it, tune it. You have to make your AI explainable and trustworthy. You have to know how to take your model into production, manage it over time, enable the business to consume predictions from it, and use it to make the right decisions. The list goes on. 

While you are trying to figure all this out, organizational leaders expect results from their investments in AI faster than ever before. It’s no wonder that many organizations never manage to get started or try to start but fail to move fast enough to get through an ever growing project backlog and operationalize their results. According to McKinsey Research “Out of 160 reviewed AI use cases, 88% did not progress beyond the experimental stage” (resource).  

Are You Ready to Start But Just Need a Little Help?

Justifying value from AI upfront then getting started fast is extremely hard. Due to all the hype, there is a lot of pressure to get moving, and it often feels like everyone around you knows exactly what they’re doing. Maybe they do and maybe they don’t. 

The good news is you now have a jumpstart. You can now directly benefit from thousands of interactions and hundreds of implementation experiences we at DataRobot have been through, working with early adopters of AI in all industries and lines of business. We have compiled an extensive library of AI use cases containing technical artifacts and best practices captured and distilled by our experts from real-world experiences working with customers just like you.
