AI Platform Credit Allocation FAQs

  • What are AI Platform credits?
    The DataRobot AI Platform runs on credits. You use AI Platform credits anytime DataRobot is doing work for you.

  • How are my credits used? 
    DataRobot provides advanced AI tools and techniques that are powered by credits. For example, credits are used when you create a new machine learning project, deploy a model, or upload data for batch scoring. You can easily track how many credits you have used in the credits display on the AI Platform Home page, or within the "usage" section of your DataRobot profile.

  • I’m out of credits, “but I didn’t do anything” -- help!
    You can see how your credits were used by going to the AI Platform Home page, and locating your credit counter.

  • What happens when I run out of credits, and how do I buy more credits?
    Upon credit depletion, your account will be turned into a read-only state.

    - For US users, you can continue using the AI Platform by clicking on Buy Credits in the app, and purchase a credit pack through our secure Stripe Checkout integration.


    - For non-US users, please click Contact Sales to discuss your options.
