Who is 'Learning' in Machine Learning
You think you can beat a machine? It's hard, because they win almost always. Its a complex environment with a lot of jargon, and its easy to feel out of depth. We'll be discussing and learning what Machine Learning is and how it'll affect your role as a Project Manager.
A large part of any PM's role is to understand, analyse, iterate and execute. You often don't get to lead the glam life, because you come into work and often end up looking at data, entering data, following people up, red tape and going through basic co-ordination leaving very little time to do work that matters, and doing work that really matters.
AI can help alleviate a lot of this using the principle that any intelligent tool would - observe, learn, understand good behaviour and repeat that desirable behaviour. Understanding how this operates will help you become better at your job and by isolating mundane repeatable processes within your business, you can come up with great applications that can be pitched to your executive team to build and solve your issues. We will go through a quick breakdown of how a traditional day for a PM looks like, what are some tasks that could be automated, and how we could build a learning system.
Who really learns, in the end, is an algorithm, much like a human it needs to be told what good behaviour and bad behaviour is. By creating scenarios and labelling processes in your business you can understand what systems have helped you to success and what processes have not helped you. Machines are not here to replace you, they're here to make you do what you love. And you can help make that happen my simply just reflecting on what you're doing today and how you can replicate the boring parts.
The schedule for the event will go into understanding the very basics of machine learning, observing the easiest patterns of ML and AI, doing a quick reflection session on which parts of your day to day you think can use a ML tool, and then looking into ways we can integrate a simple idea into your day today. It won't be in-depth, so don't worry, its a very light discussion on a topic that will change the way we work in the next 2-5 years.
Look forward to seeing you at the event.
