Product Talks By Innovify

Product Talks group, is a network of product managers and product owners where people can share ideas, and foster their own professional development. Our community is growing fast and we have an expert speaker line-up covering digital products across sectors.

 

The Talk: 

The promise of machine learning and AI is to cut costs and maximise profits which creates a symbiotic relationship between the core objective of a company and adopting AI. This acceleration comes at a societal cost - jobs will be displaced and there is no denying it. Experts are estimating between 9-47% of today’s jobs are at risk of being displaced by 2030. The new line of white-collar workers will need to learn ML and AI beyond reading blog posts and watching intros on YouTube in order to stay relevant to employers. However, the rise of machine learning, and recently deep learning is not just limited to job displacements. AI will also force us to discuss ethics, bias and crony capitalism. In this unique talk, Ammar will be explaining intuitively how machine learning and deep learning work based on his recent projects on deploying ML to social good. He is himself a product manager and data scientist hybrid mentoring people in constant learning and personal growth regardless of background and capabilities.

The 3 key elements that Ammar will  cover: 

1. How AI works explained through real projects

2. Bias, ethics and job displacement

3. Constant learning mentality as the way forward

The talk is for product managers, marketers and business executives who struggle with demystifying how Machine Learning and AI works as well as how to apply it in their own domain. Ammar is in a unique position to peel away the layers. He has a foot in both camps: one in business and the other in Data Science with hands-on machine learning experience.

Our Speaker - Ammar Jawad, Machine Learning & AI Manager for Hotels.com at Expedia Group

Ammar decided to transition away from marketing to data science five years ago. Early on in his career he grew frustrated with the art of marketing, despite having worked at some of the largest tech companies in Denmark. Today, after more than 50 online courses completed spanning data analysis, Machine Learning, statistics, and coding, he is entirely self-taught. Ammar works as a Product Manager where he intersects data science to build products powered by Machine Learning.
