Rise of the Machine Learning Product Manager & Product Management in Health Tech

The event features keynotes by:

Laura Hamilton – Rally Health VP of Product

Bio: Laura has an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Chicago, and a masters in computer science with specialization in machine learning from Georgia Tech. She has worked as a product leader at five tech companies at various stages of maturity, from pre-funding startup to publicly traded. At Rally, she is leading the product team rolling out machine learning based personalization to the digital platform.

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.
