Data Evolution in the Cloud: The lynchpin of competitive advantage

This report from our friends over at Snowflake reveals the extent to which the data sharing economy is powering business growth and how organizations are leveraging data from a range of sources to drive innovation, create better customer experiences, and meet regulatory requirements.

Video Highlights: Why Do ML Models Fail?

Our current machine learning (ML) models achieve impressive performance on many benchmark tasks. Yet, these models remain remarkably brittle, susceptible to manipulation and, more broadly, often behave in ways that are unpredictable to users. Why is this the case? In this talk by Aleksander Madry, Professor of Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, we identify human-ML misalignment as a chief cause of this behavior.
