Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have made tremendous progress in the recent decade and have become ubiquitous in almost all application domains. Many recent advancements in the ease-of-use of ML frameworks and the low-code model training automations have further reduced the threshold for ML model building. As ML algorithms and pre-trained models become commodities, curating the appropriate training datasets and model evaluations remain critical challenges. However, these tasks are labor-intensive and require ML practitioners to have bespoke data skills. Based on the feedback from different ML projects, we built ADIML (Actionable Data Insights for ML) – a holistic data toolset. The goal is to democratize data-centric ML approaches by removing big data and distributed system barriers for engineers. We show in several case studies how the application of ADIML has helped solve specific data challenges and shorten the time to obtain actionable insights.

Collaborative Machine Learning Model Building with Families Using Co-ML

Existing novice-friendly machine learning (ML) modeling tools center around a solo user experience, where a single user collects only their own data to build a model. However, solo modeling experiences limit valuable opportunities for encountering alternative ideas and approaches that can arise when learners work together; consequently, it often precludes encountering critical issues in ML around data representation and diversity that can surface…

Data Platform for Machine Learning

In this paper, we present a purpose-built data management system, MLdp, for all machine learning (ML) datasets. ML applications pose some unique requirements different from common conventional data processing applications, including but not limited to: data lineage and provenance tracking, rich data semantics and formats, integration with diverse ML frameworks and access patterns, trial-and-error driven data exploration and evolution, rapid…
