WRM: “Improving Data Readiness under Changing Technologies”
Feb 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
NC State University
Data wrangling, or preparing data for use and analysis, consumes far more resources than the actual use and analysis of the data once prepared, in large part because data wrangling is a largely manual process requiring expertise and judgment on the part of the wrangler. This project seeks to develop methods for reducing the effort needed in wrangling, and for automating or partially automating wrangling knowledge to reduce the expertise needed. These methods would apply concepts from database theory, automated planning, and economic decision theory to formalize measures of readiness of the data for different operations, uses, and tasks, and to construct wrangling plans that guarantee the specified quality of the data as required by the user.
