Q & A


Reetika Fleming, Research Director, HFS Research: First, how would you describe your vision for ML in the enterprise?


 Robbie Allen, CEO, Infinia ML: Nothing too controversial! There’s definitely a sense that more people are doing ML. In practice, most are thinking of getting started or have only just started. There are relatively few that have fully embraced ML in all its glory. That fact is due partly to the lack of talent, and partly to upwards of ten years of backlog of opportunities in ML. At the current rate of innovation, that’s only going to grow. This much is true—there won’t be a lack of opportunity of implementing ML, at least for the next decade.
