Nine lessons I learned working with ML products

I want to share with you 9 stories about ML development which illustrate how confusing and counterintuitive ML can sometimes be. Some of them fun, some... have learning value. I hope they will help you avoid some of the mistakes and achive significant results faster.

Key Takeaways:
  1. Always start with a heuristics.
  2. Reliable fallback is a good foundation for innovation.
  3. Model = Code + Data.
  4. Online/offline parity.
  5. Why models always fail quitely.
  6. Do customers care about the precision and recall?
  7. Experimenting 100x faster, are you kidding me?
  8. Where models go to die.
  9. If you want to eat well invest in modelling approaches, if you want to sleep well invest in features.
