DataRobot 7.1 has arrived!

As we reach the mid-point of 2021, we are thrilled to announce our 2nd major release of the year! DataRobot 7.1 is packed with new features and enhancements across the board to take your AI projects to the next level. Watch the DataRobot 7.1 Release webinar (on-demand) to hear more about the release, including:

  • Feature Discovery Push-Down Integration for Snowflake—You can now automatically discover and compute new features for your models directly in the Snowflake Data Cloud without moving your data. This makes feature generation much faster, more accurate, and more cost-effective. See demo video.
  • Time Series Eureqa Models Enhancements—DataRobot AutoTS now runs its unique Eureqa forecasting models as part of the regular Autopilot process. Eureqa models are based on the idea that a genetic algorithm can fit different analytic expressions to trained data and return a mathematical formula as a machine learning model. With smart feature selection, Eureqa models reduce complexity dramatically and work perfectly with datasets large and small. See demo video.
  • Nowcasting for Time-Aware Models—In the face of uncertainty, the ability to gather and interpret information quickly is critical for many decision-makers. Nowcasting can help organizations to collect critical insights by estimating the present, as yet unknown, conditions of their target variable of interest.
  • MLOps Management Agents (public beta)—Our new MLOps Management Agents provide advanced lifecycle management and monitoring for your remote models. Management agents understand the state of your remote models and can automate the task of retrieving model artifacts and deploying or replacing models directly in their environment. See demo video.
  • No-Code App Builder (public beta)—Any predictive model can become an AI app in minutes with no coding, putting the predictive power of DataRobot directly in the hands of your decision-makers. The No-Code App Builder allows users of any technical level to configure and customize their AI apps easily. See demo video.

And there’s more!
Including Automated AI Reports, Feature Discovery Relationships Quality Assessment, Prediction Jobs and Scheduler, Automated Data Prep for Time Series, and many other enhancements.

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. Make sure to tell us what you think of this release announcement, the demos, and the 7.1 features!
