In the fourth video of our Data School series, Professor Joe Hellerstein shows us modern methods of how to effectively collaborate on data preparation (and get his grades turned in on time).

Episode 3: The Role of AI in Data Prep

What is AI’s role in the data preparation process? It doesn’t take much more than asking Siri to clean your data to realize that we can’t sit back and let AI take care of all of our data preparation needs.
