LinkedIn Live Replay + Q&A

Machine learning can be applied to innovate products, automate processes, and improve customer experiences. While AI is often hyped as a replacement for people, in reality, ML models can get confused by exceptions, edge cases, and unusual data, and when that happens, a person — sometimes called a human in the loop (HITL) — must get involved.

Watch a replay of our discussion with Dean Abbott, Chief Data Scientist at SmarterHQ, and learn:

  • Why it pays to have people in the loop during ML model deployment
  • Tips for deploying people more strategically to ease ML development challenges
  • How to design a HITL approach for better model outcomes
