Overview: The saying, "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it" can be applied to many areas of life and AI development is no exception. Often the biggest lessons a developer (or a whole team) can learn come from something that went horribly awry. In this session, devs will give short, personal examples of an AI development process, tool, or methodology that went abysmally wrong and hopefully tell us what they learned from the experience. In the end, the attendee will come away with big flashing warning signs of what NOT to do!
