Release 5.3 banner-2.png

Here’s a highlight of some of the key features and changes delivered in Release 5.3. (Make sure to tell us what you think of this material.)

AI Catalog. ​Introduced in Release 5.2, AI Catalog can help you find, understand and use the assets you need for your AI projects. In this release, we’ve improved dataset versioning and feature list management so you always know you’re working with the latest information. We’ve also added the ability to store database credentials, import additional types of information, and improved the user experience throughout—including a revised SQL editor.

Automated Feature Engineering. ​DataRobot accelerates machine learning by automating feature engineering, often considered the most laborious and time-consuming step along the path from data to value. In this release, we’ve improved how primary and secondary datasets are used for feature discovery and predictions, as well as added a new feature to manage feature lineage.

MLOps. ​Also introduced in Release 5.2, MLOps provides monitoring and management for custom models built using leading frameworks and languages such as Python and R. Now you can use MLOps to monitor models trained and deployed by DataRobot alongside custom models in the same console for a view into ALL the models you have in production.

Automated Time Series enhancements.​ We already have the industry’s most powerful time series forecasting product, and we continue to innovate with every release. In Release 5.3 we’ve added several new modeling and scaling strategies, including support for up to 1M series.

Many Other New Features and Enhancements. Release 5.3 is full of powerful new capabilities you’ll want to take advantage of immediately, including enhancements to our feature association matrix and feature impact charts, more efficient user management tools, integration with SQL Server, and much more.
