Yaron Singer on building tools to guard against and reduce model failures.
Yaron Singer is the CEO of Robust Intelligence1, a company building tools to help manage and mitigate risks associated with machine learning models and applications. They are specifically creating solutions that integrate seamlessly into the ML lifecycle to guard against and reduce model failures.
There’s growing interest in tools and processes that inject software engineering rigor into how AI applications get built and deployed. I’ve seen increased interest in tools for model validation and testing, more rigorous development processes, and better documentation. The emerging discipline of AI Engineering signals interest in formalizing how AI systems are designed and built.
