AI Product Team: “We have a working ML model! ๐ŸŽ‰”

Savvy execs know…

There are 3 stages of “working” ๐Ÿ‘‡

1. Model working in a notebook
2. Model working in production
3. Model working for users (they use it and love it)

Each is a major effort and milestone (and worth celebrating).

#1 gets a lot of attention.
#2 and #3 get under estimated.
All three get conflated in conversation.

Pro-tip: Be explicit in conversation and don’t under estimate #2 and #3.
