From AutoML to Enterprise AI


The vision for the future of augmented analytics is one of complete (or nearly complete) automation, where one could feed a dataset and a target to an automated pipeline and get back cleaned data with engineered features, together with the best performing model on top.

This automation of machine learning projects - whether those projects touch company operations, processes, or product development - is the essence of the idea of Enterprise AI and would allow for greatly accelerated AI modeling.


 In this white paper, you'll find:

  • A brief definition and history of the rise of AutoML.
  • An exploration of the difference between AutoML and augmented analytics.
  • A look at the parallel development of the citizen data scientist.
  • A list of essential features to look for in AutoML and augmented analytics tools.
  • Recommendations for handling the organizational change associated with augmented analytics.
  • Case studies of AutoML vs. humans.
  • And more!
