Documentation for AI in Startups (T-Hub)


In this growing phase of AI and intelligent systems, early-stage startups face different operational difficulties as compared to larger companies. There is a growing need for maintaining documentation and review processes for AI/ML models. As these models are data dependent and are prone to change owing to newer methods of analysis or prediction, documentation help in independent audits, increasing explainability through different stages of startup growth and improves third-party assessments. Through this track, we discuss how early-stage startups, manage these challenges and how documentation has evolved in the face of such challenges? We aim to explore different tools, methodologies, and challenges faced by startups for documentation of ML models.
