Transitioning to an ML PM

  • While interested in NN, I did not want spend 6 months (or more) to create a technical portfolio in it.
  • While building models is fun, it is also demanding. And, many of the new practitioners don’t seem to want to understand the signals that they are putting into the models. It feels like there is a lot of “lets try everything and pick the best from the test set results”. I find this incredibly frustrating.
  • I like talking to customers about their problems and to developers about the models and features.
  • I like teaching about AI, their implications in products and explaining what models can and can’t do. Stakeholders and users need to understand this. It’s foundational to the responsible integration of AI and many data scientists don’t have the time or inclination to do it.
