DataCamp today announced the launch of the AI Assistant within its modern data science notebook, DataLab. The AI-powered features are now available on both free and paid DataLab plans. 


DataLab is a data science notebook created by DataCamp with data democratization in mind. Originally, DataLab gained popularity among learners building portfolios to advance their careers in data science. But as DataLab grew in its capabilities and collaboration features, it became a valuable tool for teams to discover insights together. Organizations of all types use DataLab to maximize organizational learning, helping members transition from learning data science to doing data science.

One of the standout features of DataLab is its user-friendly setup process. Unlike traditional data science notebooks, which often require tedious steps in the terminal to set up Python or R environments and install necessary packages, DataLab runs entirely in-browser. This means that users can skip the complex setup process and dive straight into their data projects with ease. Additionally, DataLab includes versioning and auto saving capabilities to streamline the workflow and ensure that valuable work is securely stored and easily retrievable.

The Ultimate Tech Sidekick

With the addition of the AI Assistant, DataLab users can look forward to a more productive future. 

The assistant is akin to Iron Man’s J.A.R.V.I.S or Batman’s Alfred, helping DataLab users plot their path to data science success.

Filip SchouwenaarsVP of Engineering at DataCamp

Filip is keenly attuned to the needs of data notebook users and is leading efforts to build DataLab based on these users ever-evolving IDE requirements. 

The ultimate objective is to seamlessly integrate DataLab into the tooling stack of the modern data scientist, enabling anyone who uses data to make informed decisions.
