How do you plan an AI project?

AI projects can be challenging, daunting, and scary, especially if you’ve never run an artificial intelligence or machine learning project before. Fortunately, there are proven, best practices approaches to running Artificial intelligence projects.

The Cognitive Project Management for AI (CPMAI) methodology provides key steps to follow for an AI project, using a best-practices, proven approach to AI project management that has seen significant success in enterprise, government, academic, consulting, and technology vendor implementations.

The CPMAI Methodology provides an AI project plan that guides organizations to AI project success following six AI project cycle stages or phases  that are followed on each project iteration:  

  • CPMAI Phase I: Business Understanding – “Mapping the business problem to the AI solution.”
  • CPMAI Phase II: Data Understanding – “Getting a hold of the right data to address the problem.”
  • CPMAI Phase III: Data Preparation – “Getting the data ready for use in a data-centric AI Project.”
  • CPMAI Phase IV: Model Development – “Producing an AI solution that addresses the business problem.”
  • CPMAI Phase V: Model Evaluation – “Determining whether the AI solution meets the real-world and business needs.”
  • CPMAI Phase VI: Model Operationalization – “Putting the AI solution to use in the real-world, and iterating to continue its delivery of value:”
