idalab seminar #14: Academia to Industry: Looking back on a decade of machine learning

Machine Learning is one of that areas that has seen a rapid transformation from a purely academic topic to becoming a driving technology in the industry these days. Mikio has seen both sides of the coin and will share his experience. What is the difference between academic research and bringing a ML driven product live? What does it take to productionize ML? And finally, how close are we to true AI?
