AI Catalog

The catalog enables seamlessly finding, sharing, tagging, and reusing data, helping to speed time to production and increase collaboration. It provides easy access to the data needed to answer a business problem while ensuring security, compliance, and consistency. This section details:

Topic Describes...
Load data/create projects Starting a project from the AI Catalog.
Work with Assets Working with existing assets.
Schedule snapshots Scheduling and renewing snapshots.
Prepare data with Spark SQL Blending datasets with Spark SQL.


For on-premise users, the AI Catalog recommends enabling Elasticsearch for significantly improved search matches, relevancy, and rankings. Contact your DataRobot representative for help configuring and deploying Elasticsearch.

The AI Catalog is a centralized collaboration hub for working with data and related assets. The DataRobot landing page provides the option to start a project via the legacy method or by using the AI Catalog.

  • execute simple data preparation, leveraging SQL scripts for pinpointed results
  • create datasets without the full commitment of creating projects
  • find, access, delete, and reuse the assets you need
  • share data without sharing projects, decreasing risks and costs around data duplication
  • dramatically improve time-to-prediction through direct use of prepared and featurized datasets, which are then available to DataRobot's Batch Prediction functionality
  • support data security and governance, which reduces friction and speeds up model adoption, through selective addition to the catalog, role-based sharing, and an audit trail
