DataFramed Podcast Series: AI and the Modern Data Stack

Find out about DataCamp's upcoming podcast series focussing on how AI is becoming a must-have for data teams and organizations.
Feb 2024

Arguably one of the biggest surprises of the generative AI revolution over the past 2 years lies in the counter-intuitiveness of its most successful use cases. Counter to most predictions made about AI years ago, AI-assisted coding, specifically AI-assisted data work, has been surprisingly one of the biggest killer apps of generative AI tools and copilots.

But what happens next if this is only the beginning?

What will analytics workflows look like when generative AI tools can also assist us in problem-solving? What type of analytics use cases can we expect to operationalize, and what tools can we expect to work with when AI systems can provide scalable qualitative data instead of relying on imperfect quantitative proxies?

To help you navigate the best way to incorporate AI into your data stack and reach the next level of AI integration, we’re releasing four specialized episodes of DataFramed, focusing on how AI is changing the modern data stack and the analytics profession at large.
