When deciding to infuse existing products with machine-learning smarts, or building ML-first products, there are multiple challenges to be aware of. First, you and your organization need to understand important dimensions -- accuracy, cost, maintainability, interpretability -- and trade-offs between them. Second, several technical challenges present themselves when deploying data science experiments into production environments. I will share some lessons learned while building ML products serving billions of predictions to live customers -- and hopefully provide some take-aways for anyone in the audience looking to indeed put machine learning into production.
