    Revolutionizing Data Pipelines, Unifying Metadata, Knowledge Graphs, and Generative AI - Alexander Shober - The Earley AI Podcast with Seth Earley and Chris Featherstone - Episode #038


    Guest: Rachad Najjar



    Our guest this episode is Alexander Schober, a data & AI project owner at Motius. He manages a diverse team of tech experts, focusing on Machine Learning, Knowledge Graphs, and Data Analysis.

    Alexander previously worked at Siemens Technology which involved pioneering research in Federated Learning and Self-Supervised Methods for anomaly detection. He used algorithms like Federated Averaging and SimCLR to address data privacy and label sparsity. Alexander joins Seth Earley and Chris Featherstone to the discuss knowledge graphs, metadata modeling for data engineering, using large language models to build data pipelines and more.

    For more content related to LLM's and Knowledge Graphs:


    • AI Enhancements with Knowledge Graphs: While not strictly required, knowledge graphs enhance the capabilities of AI, particularly large language models. The ability to provide context and resolve conflicts within the data contributes to more accurate and reliable AI outcomes.
    • Unified Metadata Model: There's a need for a unified metadata model across different tools and platforms in the data engineering and AI landscape. Disjointed metadata tools can lead to inefficiencies, and efforts should be made to integrate and unify metadata for better collaboration.
    • AI-Powered Data Pipeline Construction: Large language models can be used to generate data pipelines based on provided metadata. This approach can streamline the data engineering process, ensuring that quality checks, governance attributes, and privacy classifications are integrated into the pipeline.

    Quote of the Show:

    • " But the other thing which and then we're like it's connected to the idea of knowledge, graphs, or ontologies is the semantics, which is also really, really important. "

    [RECORDED] Product Data Mastery - Reducing Returns to Increase Margin Through Better Product Data

    Improving product data quality will inevitably increase your sales. However, there are other benefits (beyond improved revenue) from investing in product data to sustain your margins while lowering costs. One poorly understood benefit of having complete, accurate, consistent product data is the reduction in costs of product returns. Managing logistics and resources needed to process returns, as well as the reduction in margins based on the costs of re-packaging or disposing of returned products, are getting more attention and analysis than in previous years. This is a B2C and a B2B issue, and keeping more of your already-sold product in your customer’s hands will lower costs and increase margins at a fraction of the cost of building new market share. This webinar will discuss how EIS can assist in all aspects of product data including increasing revenue and reducing the costs of returns. We will discuss how to frame the data problems and solutions tied to product returns, and ways to implement scalable and durable changes to improve margins and increase revenue.
