From Model-Centric to Data-Centric – ML’s Evolution

By now, you might be thinking: if data-centricity is essential to the further evolution of AI and ML, how come model-centricity is the dominant approach?

This is a very relevant question to ask, and one we will answer in this chapter. To understand what it takes to shift to a data-centric approach, we must understand the forces that have led to model-centricity being the predominant approach, and how to overcome them.

We will start this chapter by exploring why the evolution of AI and ML has predominately followed a model-centric approach, before diving into the huge opportunity that can be unlocked through data-centricity.

Throughout this chapter, we will challenge the notion that ML requires ...
