If the data is private to the person and shouldn’t be used by any other companies. It is also protected by the government laws. Then he explained about the data collection life cycle. The data needs to be analysed to define the problem after that pattern is identified and the model is built. To deploy the model, the tool needs to be built. Multiple models with low precision and high recall need to be built.
