The purpose of the prior blog post was to illustrate the weakness of using the minimum variance unbiased estimator (MVUE) in applied finance.  Nonetheless, that begs a more general question of when and why it…

The Logjam in AI/ML Platforms is About to Complicate Your Life

Summary:  Too many solutions.  We are at an inflection point where too many vendors are offering too many solutions for moving our AI/ML models to production.  The very real risk is duplication of effort, fragmentation of our data science resources, and incurring unintended new technical debt as we bind ourselves to platforms that have hidden assumptions or limitations in how that approach problems.
