1415-1445 - How data exchange standards and metadata help analytics, ML, AI and other automated systems with data assurance information supporting reliability

Ross Philo, CEO, Energistics


One key aspect of the digital transformation of the industry is the rapid deployment of analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and automated systems. Prior to such developments there were definite limits to the quantity and diversity of data for any particular area of activity, due to the human element needed to operate the systems. Making sure that data being used for a particular task was reliable fell on the subject matter experts, and was already a rising concern in terms of the time needed to repeatedly perform these verifications.

In the modern digital environment it is desirable to involve orders of magnitude more data, such that human verification of fitness for purpose at every step is no longer feasible. The data must carry with it the information about prior data assurance validations, as well as information on how it was acquired, processed and transformed. This allows the automated systems to identify the data items that are fit for use and those that should be rejected. A standardized data format must therefore be complemented by a standard for data assurance metadata such that the data can be properly interpreted by the analytics, ML, AI or automated systems ingesting it.
