Good day,

What are the factors to consider if a task/project needs machine learning, or if a rule-based system would suffice?
How do you convince managers to either use ML or a rule-based system?

Thanks,
Joey

Hi Jose,

I think for the majority of products it makes sense to start without machine learning.
For example, with a rule-based system for detecting spam, or with counting the most popular items for doing recommendations.

Once it's working, then it's time for machine learning. By that time, you already learned how users interact with the system and collected some data - so you can use this data for training a model

I have a video about it, maybe you'll find it useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFNdLohd5cc
 
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
