What should (and shouldn't) we learn from the ML platforms developed at giants like Facebook and Google? Hussein Mehanna, Head of AI/ML at Cruise, a subsidiary of GM, is in a unique position to answer this question. Prior to joining Cruise, Hussein founded the AI Platforms team at Facebook and then went on to lead engineering and product for Google's AI platform. He's now tackling the very different scalability and business challenges posed by autonomous driving. Hussein will join Sam on the TWIMLcon stage for a live podcast interview exploring the lessons offered in the how hyperscale companies have approached scaling and operationalizing ML, and how we can apply them to our own organizations and challenges.
