AI + Analytics
Tableau AI brings the future into today’s decisions
Our approach to AI is more than just an algorithm, it is driven by practical applications to help people and organizations answer pressing questions. Tableau builds transparent AI into its platform so everyone can easily understand how predictions and insights are surfaced and why they are relevant—helping you make smarter decisions right in the flow of analysis.
We’re investing in analytical capabilities that help anyone—even those new to data analytics —get answers and uncover unanticipated insights faster through machine learning, statistics, natural language, and smart data prep.
Allows users to ask business questions in natural language and uncover results to explore data visualizations.
Discover the "why" behind insights with dynamic visualizations that allow for deeper exploration.
Tableau Business Science
Business Science is a new class of AI-powered analytics that allows people with domain expertise to make smarter decisions faster and with more confidence, recognizing that not all problems require precision at the expense of speed and business context. By equipping more people with governed, no-code AI—like predictions, what-if scenario planning, and guided model building—business teams can do more analysis themselves.
Simple and Fast
Easily explore relevant predictions on your targeted questions.
Our Business Science technologies help you make faster decisions on your focused questions by surfacing predictions and recommendations with automated discovery and no-code ML.
Feel confident in your decisions with accessible and transparent AI.
With our Business Science technologies, we model and surface data using transparent AI, equipping you and your teams with visibility into key drivers behind the results so that you can stand behind your decisions.
Build and share your insights right where you are working.
Our Business Science technologies and deep third-party AI integrations are built right where you are working. You can easily build, deploy, and operationalize custom predictive models and simulations without disrupting your analysis.
Introducing Einstein Discovery in Tableau
Easily build and integrate predictive models into your Tableau workflows
Powered by machine learning (ML), Einstein Discovery brings trusted predictions and recommendations to every Tableau user for smarter and accelerated decision-making. Developed by Salesforce and now in Tableau workflows, Einstein Discovery empowers anyone from data scientists to business users to create intuitive predictive models without needing to write code.Learn more
Predict where your business is going. Simply drag and drop to generate a forecast. Tableau automatically selects the forecasting model based on the data, and accounts for seasonality with exponential smoothing.Learn more
Predictive modeling functions
New prediction table calcs go beyond the existing trend line analytics function to build a model that understands how your data is distributed around a best-fit line. Using a linear regression model by default, MODEL_QUANTILE returns a target value at a specified percentile where MODEL_PERCENTILE returns the probability of the expected value being less than or equal to the observed mark. Change the model in the expression to regularized linear regression or Gaussian process regression and immediately see how that change impacts the predictions when compared to historical data.Learn more

How organizations can bridge the gap between data science and business outcomes
Better leverage data science and analytics investments by scaling models and custom code across the organization right in the flow of your work. Integrate and dynamically visualize the results from your R, Python, Einstein Discovery, MATLAB, and other extensions and integrations in Tableau.
Integrate R packages, statistical analysis, or any of your saved data models into Tableau visual analytics.
Python Integration (TabPy)
TabPy allows Tableau to remotely execute Python code in Tableau calculations and call deployed Python functions.
Deploy MATLAB models for predictive insights, or pre-process your data using MATLAB and persist into a Tableau data extract for further analysis.
Analytics Extensions API
Extend Tableau calculations to dynamically include programming languages, tools, and more. Create integrations similar to our TabPy and MATLAB integrations.
