Talk: Rise of the Machine Learning Product Manager
Key takeaways from the talk:
- The skillset for an ML product manager is more like the skillset of a data scientist than the skillset of a product manager.
- Rolling out machine learning in production at your organization is hard, but not for the reasons that you think.
- Rolling out machine learning in the healthcare space is *really* hard.
- Personalization is table stakes, not a nice-to-have.
- You need to have a data strategy. Your product strategy should include your plan for building, and defending, your data moat.
