    Abstract

    Artificial Intelligence burst into the mainstream in October 2022, when OpenAI released ChatGPT and garnered 100 million users in 2 months.  Although AI is not new, the excitement over ChatGPT generated a lot of questions for business as well as society in general.

    In this interactive session we will explore and discuss the business implications of AI, and how it might improve knowledge synthesis and management, enhance productivity, manage real-time situations and enable new kinds of creativity.  Noting that good data underlies all AI, we will discuss which principles of long-standing best practices in data need to carry forward in the age of AI to maximize its potential benefit.  We also will discuss what aspects of data usage may need to change, or change in importance, to make AI a valuable and ethical tool to enhance business performance. 

    Everyone is welcome to offer their experiences, perspectives and suggestions of how the data community can and should support the use of AI.

    Abstract

    This presentation examines the key practices for effective data quality management, and will provide a practical roadmap to enhance data quality practices. I will analyze the strategic definition of data quality standards, emphasizing various principles. The importance of proactive data profiling, coupled with regular assessments, is highlighted for identifying and addressing anomalies. The session reinforces the significance of a robust data governance framework, automated validation processes, and metadata management to ensure contextual insights.

    Continuous monitoring, supported by alert systems, is discussed for tracking data quality metrics in real-time. Cultivating a data quality culture through user training and awareness is suggested as a vital component. The presentation also explores the utilization of data quality metrics and key performance indicators to benchmark and assess effectiveness. The commitment to continuous improvement concludes the discussion, emphasizing the importance of regularly reviewing and adapting practices to evolving business needs.
