PennAI: AI-Driven Data Science

PennAI is an easy-to-use data science assistant. It allows researchers without machine learning or coding expertise to run supervised machine learning analysis through a clean web interface. It provides results visualization and reproducible scripts so that the analysis can be taken anywhere. And, it has an AI assistant that can choose the analysis to run for you. Dataset profiles are generated and added to a knowledgebase as experiments are run, and the AI assistant learns from this to give more informed recommendations as it is used. PennAI comes with an initial knowledgebase generated from the PMLB benchmark suite.
