AI Synergies

Driving Collective Data Governance through Smart Engagement Platforms 

The goal of this project is to bring data governance closer to the actual workplaces that are using the data by tapping into the many business applications that shape systems of engagement, such as Jupyter notebooks and Slack. To this end we developed extensions to Collibra‚Äôs platform to capture said engagements, which enabled us to learn from these engagements to optimize them and drive interpretable decision making.
