How do large companies like IBM and Amazon organize, and how does that steer how they find problems to tackle? How is that different from a smaller company like integrate.ai? What is expected from newly recruited people in large vs small companies?

How to build fair, ethical and powerful predictive ML models? How to build a ML model in practical terms and what are the steps taken to protect data, preserve privacy, measure bias, and deliver impact? At this meeting, Colin Toal will give a brief presentation, based on case studies and stories from his experience.
