This paper introduces Tableau Business Science, a new class of AI-powered analytics that brings data science capabilities to business domain experts.
Using AI, machine learning, and other statistical methods to solve business problems has largely been the purview of data scientists. Many organizations have small data science teams focused on specific mission-critical and highly scalable problems. But, there are a large number of business decisions that rely on experience and knowledge in addition to data.
With Business Science, analysts and business users who understand the context of their data can train and deploy explainable machine learning models to problems that small, focused data science teams don’t have the time or resources to prioritize.
At Tableau, analysis has always been about letting people ask that next question, explore that next hypothesis, test that next idea. Now, we’re taking it further and helping more people elevate their human judgment with practical, ethical AI that brings predictions into their business problems today. This helps organizations make even faster, more confident decisions across their lines of business, while expanding their analytics use cases and deepening their understanding of their own data.
