Abstract: Accelerating data science to speed up time-to-market, and democratizing data science for participants of different skill levels are critical in scaling data science practice for large organizations. Meanwhile, enterprise data science is a highly-complex, manual, and skill-dependent process, that requires considerable amount of database/dataframe operations to build data ETL/feature engineering pipelines as well as programming efforts to implement machine learning algorithms. This presentation discusses and demonstrates our core innovation in data science automation using an A.I.-powered feature engineering and automated machine learning. Fully integrated with PySpark on Jupyter Notebook, the end-to-end data science process is now simplified into a single line of code on Jupyter Notebook, significantly accelerating and democratizing enterprise data science.
