Media and e-commerce companies intuitively understand the necessity of storytelling, but the practice of narrative crafting is still developing for Machine Learning teams. Storytelling is a superpower, and one that leading technologists must acquire to effectively lead teams. Building a high-functioning ML team means uniting perspectives–on data value, on MLOps, and on how your problem domain evolves. Using examples from Scale AI, including work with media and e-commerce, Vijay will articulate how to structure your ML team's story–in a way which is both inclusive, and committed to solving the world’s most pressing challenges.
