3 Pitfalls For ML Model Failure (And How to Avoid Them)

The majority of data scientists say over 80% of their models fail to be deployed. What can ML practitioners do to get ahead of the biggest pitfalls — before they derail your projects, cause expensive delays, or erode trust in your product?

Duncan Curtis (SVP, AI Product and Technology at Sama) reviews three of the most impactful pitfalls when building ML models—and what you can do to avoid them.

Not Annotating Your Data Strategically.

It’s not cost effective to annotate all of your data. How do you know if you’re choosing the right training and edge-case data?

Poor Quality or Inefficient Annotations.

Too many incorrect examples can prevent your model from learning the signal.

Lack of Visibility When Validating Models.

You need to know when and why your models are failing in order to build a more resilient model ahead of an unpredictable future.
