Aug 2023  · 6 min read

With Generative AI becoming mainstream, more and more people are getting into data science—regardless of their data skill level.

Indeed, the changes have been transformative: with tools like ChatGPT that can generate Python, SQL, and R code, it is now easier than ever to unearth insights from data.

Whether you want to acquire data skills to steer AI systems, use AI for self-serve analytics, or automate routine data workflows—with Workspace AI Assistant, you can get started doing data science in seconds.

Read on to learn how to leverage Workspace AI-powered notebooks to get from data to insights faster.

What is DataCamp Workspace?

DataCamp Workspace is a modern data science notebook in the cloud that lets you do end-to-end data analytics, effortlessly.

With an intuitive interface, essential data integrations, and no-code visualizations, Workspace welcomes all skill levels. And in June 2023, DataCamp announced the new AI Assistant, which brings GPT-powered coding assistance directly into the browser.

Workspace AI Assistant for Learners: Accelerate learning data science

For beginners venturing into the world of data science, the Workspace AI Assistant is a game-changer. The AI-powered notebook not only assists in generating Python, R, and SQL code but can also help you understand and interpret the findings.

But does this mean you no longer need to learn data science if AI can write your code?

Not quite!

While the Workspace AI Assistant can handle code generation and suggest error fixes, it's essential to understand the underlying principles to steer AI in the right direction and make sure you can identify when AI hallucinates. It is still the human responsible for the output, so consider Workspace AI Assistant as a tool to accelerate your journey of mastering data science.

A common challenge faced by learners is getting stuck in debugging errors. Hours spent on Stack Overflow have now gone in the past. Workspace AI Assistant offers a "Fix error" feature, which acts as a guiding hand to navigate through and resolve coding issues. Moreover, the AI Assistant can help you optimize your Python, R, and SQL code, making it more efficient, all while imparting valuable programming syntax and best practices.

Furthermore, if you need to share your analysis with stakeholders, you can switch to Reader mode to present your findings in a clean data story. This feature will hide complex code outputs and make your story accessible to everyone.

Workspace AI Assistant for Data Experts: Let AI Do Your Routine Tasks

If working with data is at the core of your role, you can leverage Workspace AI Assistant to free yourself from mundane and routine tasks, enabling you to focus on more strategic and creative pursuits.

Write better quality code, faster. Ask Workspace AI Assistant to help:

  • import and join the data from multiple sources;
  • clean your datasets and calculate descriptive statistics;
  • prepare data visualizations;
  • prototype machine learning models;
  • turn your analysis into a compelling data story.

Workspace AI Assistant can generate and modify multiple code cells, prepare the markdown and narrative, and help you fix any errors.

Verifying algorithm quality using AI

But it doesn't stop there. Treat Workspace AI Assistant as your partner in problem-solving. Brainstorm with AI on possible solutions, and it will offer valuable suggestions and ideas to tackle complex challenges.

The synergy between your expertise and AI Assistant accelerates your data science workflow and helps unlock mental energy, leading to innovative solutions you might not have discovered.


Regardless of your data skill level, you can leverage Workspace AI Assistant to move from data to insights faster.
