He grew up tinkering with cars and learning everything. There was to know about engines and design and so looked up to his famous father.

Do you guys have a wine collection. Not for very long. Yeah i've got a couple of wines. Why way me it was really bad.

Pitfalls to Avoid for the ROI of AI
"This is Dan a Angela. You're listening to a in industry. Last week. We heard from Song Car Iranian chief practice officer of Fratelli analytics. This is a Unicorn Company. A giant firm focused on a consulting analytics consulting with large organizations this week we speak with someone with a similar background ground but at a much smaller firm Dr Charles Martin runs a company called calculation insulting Dr Charles is a bit of a mentor of mine when it comes to a knowledge even speaking to him about our business here at emerged for three plus years and Charles joins us in this month's theme on the Roi of Artificial Intelligence Charles Cassini inside of big companies like black rock on enlarge media firms in you name it in a number of different machine learning oriented projects for ten years running and Charles speaks for this this week about the particular pitfalls to getting to our lied he speaks at length about some of the cultural elements within enterprises that make it so hard to focus on the aspects of ai that are ultimately going to lead us to seeing the return Charles is quite a character and we go off in all kinds of different directions. His brain gene works in in funky ways and so we go off on one tangent run off into another tangent. That's just Kinda how my conversation with Charles so be a little bit prepared for that but it's an awfully awfully fun episode and if you're tuned in an listening closely you'll pick up on some very important. kind of cultural trends that you'll need to be ready for the fact of the matter. Is this if you are prepared for the cultural hurdles for some of the team collaboration challenges that are inevitable bringing. Ai To life in the enterprise you are going going to have a better chance of getting our y point blank period and Charles articulates them at length and with color in this episode here on a industry so without further ado you. Let's hop right in so Charles I wanted to kick off with cer- thinking about the factors mean to consider before pulling the trigger on a I project before diving into an initiative the what should business leadership which the project team do well ahead of time to give themselves the best chance of seeing a return on a project. What would you kind of nutshell there you know I I think I would give the same advice that we get in a startup is that you need to figure out how you can test your assumptions functions as quickly as possible and to pivot is quickly as possible to be able to run different kinds of experiments to figure out? What's really going to work yet so it let me think about that? Maybe out loud here with you Charles in other words when we're kicking off an issue. It's not just okay. This is the goal that we're shooting for. It's this is the goal. Here's how we think we're GONNA get there. Does this involve a little bit of Plan B. Plan C. A number of different hypotheses. We could run with kind of having all of that on decks that that if we need to change direction we can do it in real time or what does that look like in Let me give you the alternative y'all is that you go out and you have some idea that some data's going to be useful and so you spend half a million dollars buying this data and then you spend six months trying to get your data the infrastructure in place and at the end of all this you find out that the data was useless and someone comes the data scientists and go well. Why doesn't this work and they just kind of looked at you puzzle go? Why would you think it would work you you? There's been no actual vetting of the actual project other than some sort of soft feeling that you have that this should work and I think that's the hardest part is that it's sort of the story of the Edsel you know that people went out thought they are and what you have is a lot of edsels. You're not getting in front of customers or in front of users. It's getting inside your own infrastructure and figuring out what you have ch- and it's a lot easier and a lot more enticing ver- ingineers especially. It people to want to build things than to want to solve problems so they will spend an enormous amount of time time building infrastructure setting up databases doing compliance all sorts of things everything that's safe because they already know how to do it and you're just just building something and you know how to scope but you know how to budget and you know how to staff for it and then when you get to the A. I. Part you're like well. We have all the infrastructure in place then you find lied out well. You didn't really think about what you had and it turns out that maybe maybe he didn't really look carefully at your data data and it turns out your data's of mass and it takes you months of just figuring out what's in your data or or maybe it turns out the idea you had just as fundamentally only not viable. We've we've had many projects like this. Someone comes to us and they want to do a project and we look at the data and they're just like we're you know you're just going to build features and build a model built features. There's and build a model we look at the data we go. This is not a viable idea and if you look at it you could see immediately that this isn't GonNa fly and I think that's the hardest part and so you need to figure out how to design a process within your organization where you can avoid all of the process that you already have house. You can start running experiments here. Here's another another good problem another issue that comes up a lot of organizations especially. It organizations are designed around automation automation compliance governance. They want things to run into end automatically and so you start working on a project and you've got an idea of you built a modern you and you might take you like a week to build a model. Maybe it's not that complicated model as it takes six months to get this thing into production why well because you're inside the. It department is insisting that the entire product be run into end within your it infrastructure well I he's he's been around for twenty years and so the infrastructure is quite mature and Y- There's compliance issues around the data and you have to have automated build systems and automated deploy systems and it turns out that it turns that you're not really set up to do that yet. You're automated. Systems are not designed nice to roll out this new product and so it's kind of like saying the analogy matching of a factory in the factory. Make some kind of widget and you WanNa make something new. You know you WANNA make some new toy your toy company toy but you don't really know if the children are going to like it you gotta figure out how could you make a hundred little toys Oy. Give him out to your customers and tested before you spend six months retrofitting your factory and the same thing problem and it I- shops the problem is that the it world wants delivery but data science is not about delivery. It's about discovery discovery. Okay another this okay you might if we poke into this Charles Life. That's more than a lot to unravel here. I know the audience is GonNa want to catch up with so yes yeah so the delivery versus discovery is a very interesting dynamic. It's a that's a nice nutshell. You know it's sort of like you have emphasized the. Ai Is not it deal you know we have kind of the probabilistic versus the the more if then type of scenario this is another lens on it the delivery it versus discovery avary and I think one of the things that would be useful to unravel for the audience would be what are these assumptions. What are these assumptions that maybe people don't realize our assumption so the way that I see this when you're articulating Charleston I want to kind of make this into a couple of actionable bullets for for the folks tuned in would be as we're imagining our? Ai Project we're thinking through okay. I believe that this data trained in this kind of way with this kind of a model would be able to decrease are false positives or would be able to recommend commend better products that might improve our car value by X. percent or something like that whatever the case may be what we'd have to do is essentially look at what we're going to try and ask ourselves in a very harsh light here and preferably with data scientists in the room. I think a lot of these mistakes are made when it's just the C. Suite laying out how this is GonNa work we get data scientists in the room mm-hmm and we say which of these things that that we're GonNa think are going to happen here or completely hypotheses and maybe we're never going to have one hundred a percent of a proper guests on the upfront but can we maybe come up with a better set of hypotheses. Is there a better data set we could start with. We don't know it's going to work but maybe we could begin with a better hypothesis so is it. Is it worth sort of assessing here's what we want to roll out. Here's all the all the assumptions that underpin that whether we think their assumptions are not here's all the assumptions that underpin that data scientists scientists and business people to pick those apart and then say are any of these blatantly stupid or can any of these be tested in very small ways that we feel good about releasing these funds is this kind of what you're getting at is. Is there a better more high level way yeah go ahead kind of but the here's the problem with that we've had projects go into a company and we have a very very simple product. We want to produce something you want to improve the accuracy wouldn't build some classify or some predictor as look you gotta give me your data and you gotTa give me two weeks seeks minimum to just look at the data and what happens is they come in and the first thing they want to do is have this hypothesis session but they're not hypotheses their conjectures because a hypothesis in the scientific method requires that you I have looked at some data we make hypothesis. This is based on things you've seen so it's not a hypothesis if you haven't actually looked at anything yet conjecture just wild speculation and what happens is you go into a planning meeting and people have all sorts of ideas of things it would like to try all we can do this so we can do that we could. It's like you know you're it's not they're not functional ideas because you haven't really thought about what the date is actually telling you and I think this is one of the hardest things to grasp and it's very hard because what happens in any organization is larger Oreo especially now because or now we're starting to see I A- carrying larger organizations tend to think about how people in large organizations thank you know when the manager or the or the or the business leader comes in and says something well. They're gonNA do whatever that person says irrespective of whether it's a good idea or not because they're trying to basically do their job and cover themselves so they're not going thank you and and and they're not gonNA think okay I need to go out and take some risk and I need to try to guess what we need to do anything to try to look at the date on prophesized something. They're gonNA be much more comfortable if someone tells them. Here's what I want you to do and you do it because they're going to be more secure in their jobs. It's just the nature of how how large organizations work many times you know when we've done. Ai Project that they think what's changed is that if you were to talk to me about a I even five years ago I would say well. This is mostly being done within the innovation groups of a company but now what we're finding is you know you carve out some piece of the company which is isolated needed from all the other processes and by carving that out you're not burdened by the processes or the management structure but now we're starting to see I happened inside of companies just inside the company. Everyone wants to be. I every company is trying to be an I look it's all Google and facebook talk about as ai yes.

"Edsel sent you. Waddle and Silvy on ESPN one thousand. Let's get credit where it's due. Ryan pace is the guy that put the same together. No matter right down to hire. And Matt Nagy? So he's got a great coach he kept Vic Fangio there and look at every movies made all the free agencies. Brought in the trade obviously for Cleo back. Everything is coming up aces for the for this team. And right now, this deep that's who the hell wants to play this team. And you were making the comment earlier this morning a lot of teams in the NFL play vanilla defense. Oh, yeah. No. This is there's no vanilla ice cream here. We're getting all kinds of flavors with this guy. And that's the beauty of it. They got great players and a great coach who plays a multiple scheme. That's why I'm telling you. I don't care if they have to go into New Orleans or wherever this defense will travel, and and I expect them to be right there. Rex Ryan on get up this morning. With his praise of ours. Chicago Bears Sylvie here on ESPN one thousand Pap oil in for Sylvie. I've spent a lot of time talking about what the bears complex yesterday on the lakefront, and I concur with Rex Ryan. I think Ryan pace who was I think in the crosshairs a little bits after a couple of things that he did didn't work out.

So it's all working all work, and in willowbrook, he has a thought question or comments. How are.

"You are wrong, someone if you're angry at someone if you have some unresolved issue, particularly with a family member, or maybe your best friend when you were growing up and you haven't spoken in twenty years. That's a serious mistake. And the reason is because when you get to that last homestretch, and it's about time to turn out the lights and go on to the next life, all of those unresolved issues are gonna come flooding back to you in a way that you can't even imagine. So the common sense advice. So that you don't make that stupid mistake. Which is the one tragic mistake at the end of your life is resolve those differences. Now, if it means picking up the phone and saying, you're sorry, even if it wasn't your fault pick up the phone and say, you're sorry now if the other person doesn't accept it. That's okay. At least it's not on your conscience. You're not going to carry that around. And so many of us have that kind of baggage where we have these unresolved problems with other people. So you remember the Etzel made by the Ford Motor Company -solutely? Okay. That was a huge mistake that car didn't last long at all. And it was named after Edsel Ford. Yup. Did somebody who came out with that took a chance, right? Took a chance. Gambled. It didn't work. Would you call that a mistake or a stupid mistake? Well, I I don't even know if it was mistake, I think that was a that was a a calculation that led to advancements because there were some aspects of the Edsel, and I'm not a mechanical engineer. So I don't know all of them. But I know there were some things that they built into the Edsel that became common in future vehicles made by Ford Motor Company. So there's there's always the potential to learn. And again, the word stupid has a real strong negative connotation for a lot of people. And I don't mean it that way. I mean, a stupid mistake is one where you go like a, man. What was I thinking that was really dumb? It's a self reflective kind of thing not a name calling of someone else. So when we take chances if we learn from those chances, even if it's a mistake, or even if you wanna call it.

Let's all get upset or who's underpaid, whatever it's good conversation. But the best part was reading about Randy edsels bonus structure, my man, my goodness. Have you seen this? No. Oh, yeah. Randy Etzel. So USA today, put this out and it has to be true because USA today put it out and it's on Twitter, not fake news ready Etzel can get up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars in incentives on a game by game. And or season basis is the head coach at Connecticut. Of course. Here are some of his bonuses that he can get the defense. If the they lead the game in tackles for loss margin points per possession, turnover margin or Saks any of those two thousand dollars each. Season points per game allow wasn't cashiers. This puts a nickel nickel hanging on football. This state's going through some hard times. Season points per game allows. This is defensive scoring allowed zero to ten points. He gets fifty grand. Eleven to fifteen forty grand goes all the way up to twenty six to thirty points per game allowed. He gets ten thousand dollars you. So you have a defensive thirty points a game, ten grand. That's one. Just went to the supermarket. And then for the offense, he gets two thousand dollars if his team scores I and again. This is Vegas. This is a Vegas props, two thousand dollars if they lead to game and points per possession or total offense in two thousand dollars. If he if his team leads at the half. So imagine this. It's fourth down and goal at the one games tied. Ready Edsel sending in the field goal. You'll remember leading at halftime, two thousand dollars and it's up and good. Randy. That's okay. Money by the way he's going to. Absolutely. If he wins the toss he takes the opening kick every time, right to see the stats show for two thousand dollars bonus for winning the civil conflict. Yeah, just, yeah, just, you know, if you think that he's above any of this, you are wrong because I can tell you what he is not spending any of this bonus money on is that book what, how to make friends and influence people. Now, Dale Carnegie. Kids let this be a lesson to you. Having a great personality and being friendly to people that does not earn you any bonuses for having the most third third along conversion, but it's hard to put a price tag on scoring. I. And leading a game and tackles for loss pardon or getting on a plane from the fiesta bowl and never coming home again. Oh, wait. He did. He was able to do that and they gave him bonuses bonus round.

I mean I I'd be okay. Was sixty million but I might look at, I know the guy who took it from me. No. Okay. Come on now. Right. So the number twenty one failure of all time. At Seoul, the Edsel from Ford introduced in nineteen fifty seven. They aggressively marketed the Etzel named after Henry Ford son. It was to be the car of the future made available on dealership lots on what Ford dubbed day. Despite the hype, the car was a commercial disaster. It was considerably overpriced disappointingly not futuristic and generally just playing a Bush. Yeah, just ugly car and they they discontinued production after two years and lost three hundred fifty million. That's a lot of money in nineteen fifty. The money. I'm kind of hung up on the fact that someone named their child Edsel. We should look into that too should look into that because that's stupid. Number twenty failure. The number twenty product of all times from Facebook, Facebook home. I, I'm not familiar with this or you guys with rising mobile phone use and social media engagement.

"In engineering centers and invest in talent and and compete on the level of Twitter, hey, they, they have raised the bar and and Ford recognizes that and and and you know, you can't just try to get where they're at. You gotta overshoot that to to be able to go and compete enough, like through the leadership of day pair SaK is now moved on within the company. He's going to do great things in the company, but the leadership from Johanna Rick and Jim Farley Bill Ford Edsel Ford is greater than I've ever seen a racin and they wanna win championships. Yeah, that's something that's ludicrous for. Since two thousand four and it's hard to believe. And you think about that? Yeah, we've been so close and Jimmy Johnson guy got in her way. Couple ruined it for a lot of people feel bad, but but I'm proud and it's a great moment. And I would say that the what, how I characterize it as Ford's on offense, and that's what you have to be to to win races and compete for championships and, and we have a lot of work to do, you know. So when you see that seventy eight car. Yeah, Razan again, not that he was ever down but starting to come back. I think that's really motivation for us to to make sure that we're done every I and crossing every t to finish the season strong. And now we are very capable. But you know, Kentucky is a great race for us. We had eight cars and the top twelve. But the problem is we didn't win, didn't have the first one. Yeah. So I mean with somebody says, hey, that was a really good race. Well, today's standards, no, that's how Kevin Harvick looks at two. That's right position matters. That's right. And that's that's attitude. You have to have. And I hope we'll be positioned well and be able to bring it home for the four this year. That's gonna require obviously some some long term planning. And we've looked back a lot here when when a close, Doug, just by looking ahead a little bit. I was on siriusxm this morning and I had a caller who said, what's the deal with v eight engine, you know, the push rod, no, not just for relevance sake, but for competition sake, this guy was suggesting maybe NASCAR needs to start looking ahead here with the engine architecture. What would you like to see the directionally from NASCAR in terms of like, we're the engine goes, and then your vision on maybe like what NASCAR engines might look like five, ten twenty years from now? Yeah. Well, I think it's kind of back to what we talked about earlier. I think technology is important to keep people attracted to to our industry to our company. You know what I mean? You you wanna make sure you're working on things that are exciting and new and give them back to four Motor Company. We've done that through our work with four GT and loose engine. We've done that through our work with the Mustang engine. That's a five point, two liter VA. You know, those things are exciting. I think you have to plan. I think you have to be have a vision. On NASCAR. You know, we're working closely with them on what that vision looks like. I mean, how many years out could we have something that you know maybe looks more like a production base engine? Yeah. This all started with stock engines and stock cars, and I'm not opposed to listen. Look at that again, what is an engine out of a Mustang look like in a in a Mustang on the racetrack and the guy who drives it up to the track kind of seizes product on the track, and we're, we're making more power than what he drove to the track with, of course, because that's what we do. We live on the edge of performance and as long as they keep them racing in it and the competition in it, I think we should be thinking about more production, relevant technology and giving back and and keep in the manufacturers interested in what we're doing and and not just from a marketing effort to say they have their their logo on the car, the blue oval. But but how? How do we make sure that those things that race on Sunday get back to the cars that they make and let you know winning when you went on Sunday, you sell on Monday that still the reason why these..
