An Only One Step Ahead Guide to Machine Learning Projects

There is a lot of hype around machine learning. There are numerous tutorials on how to train a machine learning model with existing libraries, which had made starting a project much easier. But how do I actually build a machine learning product? As someone who is new to software development and machine learning, I have worked on several projects from scratch in the last two years. I also learned about additional considerations in building a machine learning product besides what's covered in software best practices. In this introductory talk, I will provide a few tips in different stages of a machine learning project. These are things I wished I knew when I first started doing machine learning, such as what kind of questions to ask and how to structure my workflow, that will lead to better results and save time.
