Panel on product and AI

Submitted Jul 14, 2017

Basis for the discussion:
Technology is getting commoditized rapidly. Google, FB are on open source spree that solves hard problems. However, there is still scope to build vertical specific AI products.

The goal is to seek answers to the below questions:

  • how can new startups build AI products?
  • how can existing companies leverage AI?


Part 1: busting the AI myth

Critique questions:
Do you really apply deep learning (or AI)
What is the size of dataset that you play with
What is more painful: collecting data or applying AI
How do you map effect/outcome of deep learning (or AI) on product metrics

Part 2: dark data

The data advantage
The user advantage
Building a product that has a loop between users and data
Is data your core advantage (and not technology)
How fast can your competitors have the same data (or technology)

Part 3: building products

B2B (or SAAS) product vs consulting
Since you don’t own data, how do you build a scalable product
If there is too much customization required to serve every customer, how do you build a business

B2C product vs technology
How do you build defensibility with AI
Do you build good to have features for existing market or a scalable product to serve new market
Patents vs 10X improvement in technology via research

Part 4: product-customer experiences

Has AI delivered on its promise so far
What more needs to be done
