Large data lakes hold immense potential for businesses, thanks to the combination of structured and unstructured data. However, organizations often struggle to analyze unstructured, unlabeled data, such as images, video, and documents. Despite this challenge, many enterprises are collecting this data to power advanced analytics use cases, including image recognition.
In this webinar, we will explore how leading enterprises are leveraging the power of unstructured data to gain faster business insights and build AI applications. Experts from Databricks and Labelbox will provide insights on how to harness unstructured data for business value, including best practices for extracting insights from large data sets and techniques for integrating structured and unstructured data.
