It was 2015 when Dj Das realized machine learning “is not something that lives in its own cave” and that his company, Third Eye Consulting, had an opportunity to provide services in the space.
“The biz opportunity is crazy,” he said. “It is as [big] as the internet wave because everything can have a machine learning back end. Machine learning can help us in every [part] of our lives, not just from a consumer perspective but an enterprise perspective. It’s crazy at the enterprise level.”
That is due in large part to the fact that enterprises sit on huge amounts of data that they haven’t yet analyzed, Das said. Now the compute power is available to make that happen. “I definitely believe this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” he said of machine learning projects. “It’s going to be crazy, but there is definitely a lot of work required in actual implementation, and we’re in the early stage of the algorithms.”
