AI Workflow: Business Priorities and Data Ingestion
- IBM AI Enterprise Workflow Introduction
- The goal of this first module is to introduce you to the overall specialization requirements, evaluate your understanding of some key prerequisite knowledge, and familiarize you with several process models commonly used today. In this course we will use the process of design thinking, but it is the consistent application of a process in practice that is important, not the exact process itself. There are a number of reasons for choosing the design thinking process, but the most important is that it is being applied in a cross-disciplinary way—that is outside of data science.
- Data Collection
- Throughout this module you will learn or reinforce what you already know about identifying and articulating business opportunities. In this module you will learn the importance of applying a scientific thought process to the task of understanding the business use case. This process has many similarities to that of being an investigator. You will also generate a healthy respect for the need to pause, step back and think scientifically about the main processes in this stage.
- Data Ingestion
- Cleaning, parsing, assembling and gut-checking data is among the most time-consuming tasks that a data scientist has to perform. The time spent on data cleaning can start at 60% and increase depending on data quality and the project requirements. This module looks at the process of ingesting data and presents a case study working a real world scenario.
