How AI Chatbots Augment the BI Experience

Webinar Speaker: James Kobielus, Senior Research Director, Data Management

Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2023

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET

AI chatbots have taken the world by storm. This sophisticated technology, powered by large language models (LLMs), is being developed by solution vendors, open source communities, and academic institutions.

When trained on a vast corpus of preexisting textual material, LLMs can intelligently respond to user’s text prompts by generating content of surprisingly high quality. Many LLM-driven chatbots, such as ChatGPT, primarily generate textual outputs, while others can even generate realistic images, composite drawings, and other media outputs.

This technology is on the verge of augmenting the enterprise business intelligence (BI) experience. The key BI use cases for LLM-driven chatbots include its ability to automate development of SQL and Python code, sample and synthetic data sets, and the formulas and techniques best suited for various data analysis tasks. In addition, this new technology can support more flexible natural language query functionality for searching online catalogs for preexisting queries, reports, and other BI content to suggest assets that are most relevant to a user’s quest. It also has the potential to automatically generate plain-language narratives around BI-delivered insights, thereby making them more actionable.

Join TDWI’s senior research director James Kobielus on this webinar to explore how AI chatbots are augmenting the BI experience. Key points that he will discuss include:

  • What are AI chatbots?
  • What are the key enterprise use cases for LLM-driven AI chatbots in BI?
  • How should organizations evolve their analytics practices to leverage the potential of LLMs and AI chatbots to deliver actionable insights?
  • What are the business risks associated with AI chatbots and LLMs?
  • What new analytics governance practices should enterprises adopt to mitigate the risks associated with LLMs and AI chatbots in the BI experience?

After Kobielus’ presentation, invited guest Mike Smitheman from Metric Insights will discuss his perspective on AI chatbots in the BI experience, followed by a demonstration of Metric Insights’ solution, the BI Concierge that enhances the BI discovery process for organizations, helping users quickly and easily discover the best assets to answer their questions.
