Product Design for A.I. driven products

Nick Lothian CEO Tyto.AI

Modern applications are increasingly using A.I. and machine learning to drive important parts of their functionality. While there has been significant progress on improving the raw algorithms powering these systems there has been little thought put into *how* they should be used within applications.

In this talk, Nick will show examples from 4+ years experience in running A.I. driven products of the different concerns one needs to consider when integrating these tools into applications.
