What is a Minimum Viable Model (MVM)?

You’ve heard of an MVP, right? Similarly, a minimum viable model (or MVM) is the creation of an AI/ML application that is able to be tested. In software development, it’s the first major milestone of an AI model.

The goal of an MVM is to be able to build quickly, test early and discover real world opportunities or challenges while reducing risk and costs to creating and implementing AI application.

Our MVM process

Our MVM process will guide you through the necessary steps to build an initial AI/ML model. Our process follows the industry standards, starting with identifying a hypothesis, analyzing a data set, determining the appropriate algorithm, cleaning, segmenting and qualifying the data, training the algorithm against the data, and evaluating the model against the business use case.

Machine Learning Process

MVM deliverables often include:

  • Competitive analysis
  • Customer journey maps
  • Solution architecture documentation
  • Product requirements
  • Defined business and technical level roadmap
  • Testable AI/ML model
