ChatGPT and the Future of Analytics Engineering
ChatGPT, an advanced generative AI model developed by OpenAI, is transforming various fields including software development and data and analytics engineering.
In this session we will explore the potential of generative AI models to complement or even replace traditional analytics engineers and consultants, based on our experiences using ChatGPT-4 and other LLM (Large Language Model) technologies within Rittman Analytics, a UK-based modern data stack consultancy. Through a series of real-world tasks and challenges, we will evaluate ChatGPT’s capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses in handling schema definition, dbt package creation, data deduplication and integration, highlighting where it adds value but also where human expertise and guidance is still required.
