DataRobot Release 6.2 is here! It is packed with innovation for every step of your AI journey, from data to value. The release includes enhanced automated feature discovery (feature engineering), a new comprehensive Autopilot mode for maximum accuracy when you need it, anomaly assessment insights to help you uncover root cause, governed approval workflows in MLOps, and much, much more.
We would very much like to walk you through all of the details of the release in a live environment, but until then, here are some highlights of the release. (And tell us what you think of this release announcement and demos, as well as 6.2 features!)
Next-Level Feature Discovery: An enhanced dataset relationship workflow, makes it much easier to select multiple datasets, and define, edit, and visualize all your relationships at the same time. You can now access logs to get details on which features were explored, discarded, and generated. You can also download the full training dataset, including all the derived features.
Comprehensive Autopilot Mode (PUBLIC BETA): This new mode runs every single model in the repository for your project, taking as long as necessary to maximize accuracy when you need it most. We also have a new Get More Accuracy feature, so you can kick off Autopilot in Quick mode, then start Comprehensive mode only after you’ve seen your initial results.
Anomaly Assessment Insights: New in Automated Time Series 6.2, this interactive visualization allows you to quickly investigate anomalies and anomalous regions in your data, and access SHAP scores for the underlying features causing the anomaly. This allows you to understand the root cause, as well as be able to explore all of your anomalies, panning through different time segments and zooming in to see the detail.
Model Comparison Reimagined: The ability to compare models has taken a huge leap forward in Release 6.2. We worked with our most experienced data scientists to give you the best possible user experience where you can compare models and choose the best for deployment. We have enhanced the Lift Charts, ROC Curve, and Profit Curve, added support for more bins, and have added new tooltips to enhance overall ease of use.
Governed Approval Workflows: Customizable governance policies and review and approval workflows come to MLOps in 6.2. This introduces accountability in your production AI, and enables you to continue to deploy and manage production models while at the same time increasing your overall level of AI governance for your entire organization.
Connect to Remote Repositories: We recognize that your data science teams often govern and manage their models in popular open source code repositories. In Release 6.2, MLOps allows you to connect directly to your GitHub and S3 repositories and dynamically pull model code and model artifacts into DataRobot, making it simple to package, test, deploy, and monitor them in your production environment of choice.
These are just a few of the great new features that we have added based on your feedback. When combined with your ideas, capabilities like these help make your organization truly AI-enabled. For a complete list of all of the new and enhanced features included in DataRobot Release 6.2, please visit the DataRobot Community or our customer support portal.
