About the DataHour:

The process of going from data to insights and decisions using AI involves multiple stages


(a) Connecting to various first and third party data sources.

(b) Prepping, cleaning and stitching them to produce a ground truth.

(c) Interactively visualizing to obtain insights

(d) Advanced analytics for extracting information from unstructured data like text-and-images, predicting, and identifying anomalies.

(e) Scenario analysis to understand various tradeoffs.

(f) Performing action, connecting to downstream systems, alerts and automation. 

Currently, this involves a team of data engineers, scientists, analysts, and business users along with a large number of enterprise tools to make it possible.

In this DataHour, Devarat will discuss how all of these above mentioned stages can be achieved by a business user without requiring a team of data engineers, scientists, or analysts, with no code AI platforms, such as that built by Ikigai Labs, with spreadsheet skills. He will also illustrate the steps involved through a real life example of inventory planning in retail and supply chain.


Prerequisites: Zeal of learning Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

Who is this DataHour for?

  • Students & Freshers who want to build a career in the Data-tech domain.
  • Working professionals who want to transition to the Data-tech domain.
  • Data science professionals who want to accelerate their career growth
