What are Hero Methods?

While Machine Learning is amazing, it's not the only method to solve problems in AI.
We introduce you to the full palette and how to apply them.

Complex in nature

Problems solved by Hero Methods - Hero Problems - are not effectively modelled by simple rules, as you find in most software. 

List of Methods

Machine Learning, Optimization, Simulation, Knowledge Representation, Search/Planning, Dealing with Uncertainty, High Performance Computing.

Brute Force is infeasible

To solve complex problems, we need concise reliable methods that abstract & generalize the underlying patterns with efficient compute that can process formal representations.

"Good enough" is good enough

Complex problems may not have exact answers. The process to solve them is beset with uncertainty and may yield different results every time. Approximate, "rule of thumb" solutions are sufficient.

Problem Definition is your weapon.

Better understand your domain, relate to your audience and lead to consensus.
Ignore it at your peril. We show you how to do it right!

#1 Hero vs. Non Hero

Unlike classic software builds, for problems in  AI, the solution is not always known. Much experimentation is needed to surface the answer.

#2 Common Ground

Regardless of which, you are never going to solve it right, if you don't know what you're solving. Problem Definition is the first thing you'll need to do.

#3 Maven of Modelling

Problem, not solution. You'll learn about it from stakeholders. You then decompose it into sub-problems - in different ways. The end goal - Modelling.

#4 Shepherd Stakeholders

Then, teach stakeholders the many dimensions of an AI problem. Show them how and why you decomposed yours, and get their feedback. Earn buy-in & consensus.

Architecture in AI is Experimental 

Develop this superpower. We help you level up!

Solution Architecture is hard. It's technical - you'll need to really know the domain & the tech. It's leadership - you'll need to shepherd doers & stakeholders through the build.

Add AI to the mix, and it gets harder. AI is experimental.  You won't know whether it works until you actually pilot it. 

It's about building a sense for which methods and configurations work well for your problems. It's about running an experimental setup across your problems while gauging how you are doing at the moment. It's about better managing the resulting data explosion that arises.

And this while setting & managing the expectation that - a) this might not actually work, and b) even if it works now, it may degrade as you go.

Why the long view matters

We show you what you can do now to prepare.

1. AGI vs Machine Learning

Those in the AGI community will tell you AI will be here sooner than you think. They treat AI as something more than Machine Learning. Unlike the latter, most AI reside in dark sites around the world. Government, military, protected. Regardless of what form it takes, when it arrives, it's going to change everything!

2. Foundations of AGI

Regardless of where AI resides, Hero Methods - Machine Learning, Optimization, Simulation, Knowledge Representation, Search/Planning, Dealing with Uncertainty & High Performance Computing - will form its bases.

3. Present and Future

As a result, AI is also experimental in nature. Learn how to experiment with Hero Methods now and  you’ll have gained the ability to adopt/adapt AI when it arrives. Thankfully, there is a rich abundance in use cases and applications today - no need to look far. If you wait till AI is here, it will be too late.

4. Looking ahead

At Kado, we are forward thinkers. In order to get ready for the road ahead, we are betting our present on Hero Methods. Experimenting is part of our DNA and we can show you how to make it a part of yours.
