Data Assessment and Readiness for AI

The session 15 of day 5 was taken by Hima works as a Research Manager in IBM Research India, leading a research group that is focused on developing novel technologies using Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing and pushing the state-of-art in this area/domain. She gave an overview on AI and its applications. She explained how to solve the challenges by building a framework that can act as a decision support system for data scientists and gives insights about the quality of data with respect to building a machine learning model. Specifically, our framework does three things:

  1. Analyze the data and gives a score on data readiness across different dimensions.
  2. Explain the low score by pointing to regions in the data that are of low quality
  3.  Recommend data fixes to make the data ready for AI.

She also discussed the shortcomings and inefficiencies in current practices related to data pre-processing and quality assessment. Finally the speaker illustrated the concept of Data Readiness Report as a shareable asset that accompanies the data and discussed the shortcomings and inefficiencies in current practices related to data pre-processing and quality assessment.
