The Critical Element of Foundational Architecture

Recently I chaired the Artificial Intelligence Accelerator Institute Conference in San Jose – in the heart of Silicon Valley.  The event has brought together industry innovators from both large and small organizations, providing a wide range of perspectives. For example, the CEO of AI and ML testing startup of Kolena, Mohamed Elgendy and Srujana Kaddevarmuth, Senior Director, Data & ML Engineering, Customer Products, Walmart Global Tech discussed productization of AI solutions and ways to increase adoption. I especially liked the idea of a model catalogue from which data scientists can retrieve data sets and machine learning models that others have built rather than starting from scratch.
