When ChatGPT was first introduced, professionals from every industry were intrigued and mesmerized by AI’s potential
Save for data analysts.
Many developers working with data were impressed, but analysts remained somewhat skeptical. Generative AI provides answers that are not deterministic and can sometimes produce inconsistent information for use cases involving data models and programming syntax.
New features have quickly been introduced to help ChatGPT meet programming and data analysis needs more effectively. The most noteworthy is Code Interpreter, a software plugin that allows ChatGPT Plus users to run programs and conduct exploratory data analysis. The impact on analytics has been so significant that OpenAI rebranded the plugin as ChatGPT Advanced Data Analysis to better reflect its capabilities.
