Home / News and Events / Industry Leader Series / Sujoy Roy (AWS) – Building Machine Learning Solutions: A Working Backwards Approach


Working Backwards is Amazon’s process of discovery and invention that delivers customer delight. Whether it is research or product building, at the Generative Al Innovation Center, AWS, we take a working backwards approach starting with the user/customer. This talk will discuss the different stages of this working backwards approach to research and building a production ready machine [earning (ML) solution. With specific examples of ML based products/solutions we dive deep into how to start with a business problem and build a minimum valuable product (MVP) using machine learning. As part of this we will also discuss a few AWS ML products/services and AWS open sourced software that helps with building such MVPs.
