Adding steps with AI Prepare#

AI Prepare lets you type out in plain language what you want to achieve in the output dataset. It will then generate a group of steps based on your input using the available Dataiku processors.

Two side-by-side screenshots of the AI prepare step in a Prepare recipe. The first screenshot shows an example prompt, "Parse the purchase_date column dates and remove the old column." The second screenshot shows the two Prepare recipe steps that were generated by the prompt.

Some example prompts include:

  • Extract month from date column

  • Multiply columns item_price and items_purchased

  • Remove duplicates from user_id

  • Rename merchant to merchant_id
