Why AutoML Isn’t Enough to Democratize Data Science 

In this contributed article, Noam Brezis, co-founder and CTO of Pecan AI, explores that because AutoML was born out of academia, in its current incarnation it is only built to simplify the model building process. This is likely the reason why existing AutoML solutions are finding challenges with scaling. Plus, these types of solutions are not incorporating the aspects of data prep and feature engineering, nor the model training, deployment and monitoring, which as a result slowing down adoption of AI within the enterprise and curtailing the impact it can deliver.

Interview: David Willingham, Principal Product Manager, MathWorks

I recently caught up with David Willingham, Principal Product Manager, MathWorks to discuss the evolution of data-centric AI and how engineers can best navigate – and benefit from – the transition to data-focused models within deep learning environments. As research into data-centric AI continues, we can expect best practice to evolve to suit a growing list of applications. Greater levels of data optimization and collaboration between multi-disciplinary teams is also likely to follow in the near future.
