TubeMogul, Uber alums launch Arize AI for AI observability

“‘Businesses are deploying these complex models that are hard to understand, they’re not easy to troubleshoot or debug,’ Lopatecki said. So if an AI or ML model isn’t delivering the desired results, ‘The state of the art today is: You file a ticket, the data scientist comes back with a complicated answer, everyone’s scratching their head, everyone hopes the problem’s gone away. As you push more and more models into the organization, that’s just not good enough.’”

More than a billion dollars a quarter of gross sales are brought in by AI

“Food delivery has become a $100 billion-plus market. Uber Eats is the fastest growing U.S. meal delivery service, posting a $6 billion bookings run rate within just four years of getting started, according to Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. In 15 major U.S. cities, Eats has surpassed GrubHub, previously the unchallenged delivery leader. Why isn’t anyone talking about it?

It shouldn’t come as a shock: The company’s growth is spearheaded by brand recognition, a loyal customer base, and a full-throttle focus on the advantages of machine learning and artificial intelligence across their entire business. At VentureBeat’s Transform 2018, Uber director of product Jairam Ranganathan noted that on the order of more than a billion dollars a quarter of gross sales are brought in by AI that wouldn’t have otherwise been posted. (Uber Eat’s Head of Data Science, Chen Peng, will be one the notable speakers at VB Summit, October 22-23 in Mill Valley, CA).”
