Manifesto for applied Artificial Intelligence development

We are uncovering better ways of developing Artificial Intelligence applications by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work, we have come to value:

  • Engineers, Experts, and Product Owners over Data Scientists
  • Customer-Driven Solutions over Data-Driven Problem Solving
  • Outputs That Matter over Inputs We Happen To Have
  • Software Interoperability over Tuning Algorithms
  • Explainability and Accountability over Accuracy

While we value the items on the right, the items on the left generate better solutions, more meaningful impact, and decreased confusion.
