The Data School with Professor Joe Hellerstein: 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. In session 3 of the Data School with Professor Joe Hellerstein, Joe takes a look at how human intelligence, and artificial intelligence, can work together to make data cleaning easy and intuitive.

The Data School with Professor Joe Hellerstein: Collaborative Data Prep

Every dataset that matters deserves a second set of eyes on it. But how can you review a dataset if you don’t know what steps have been taken to create it? In the past, analysts might’ve verbally run through how the dataset had been transformed to get sign-off, or at the very least written down their steps. 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).
