A recent press release reports, “DataRobot, a pioneer in automated machine learning, announced today the release of a new version of the DataRobot Cloud platform for the European Union (EU). The DataRobot EU Cloud, available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) EU (Ireland) Region, is able to support the unique needs of EU customers, whose data is tightly regulated, as well as help enterprises conform to the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. With growing sensitivities over data privacy and breaches, the need for organisations to keep and process customer data at the point of origin is vital. With the introduction of GDPR and its 25 May 2018 enforcement date, organisations are also required to develop a strategy to prove compliance or face hefty fines. The DataRobot EU Cloud ensures European organisations adhere to enhanced data sovereignty requirements without sacrificing any enterprise-grade capabilities.”
The release continues, “DataRobot Cloud, built on AWS, provides DataRobot customers in Europe with the potential of faster response times and all of the flexibility, agility, and convenience that the cloud provides. The new cloud environment provides full transparency into the automated machine learning process and full compliance with GDPR in four key ways: (1) Prediction Explanations: DataRobot Prediction Explanations provide context to individual decisions made by the models. (2) Model Documentation: DataRobot’s automated model documentation process can be fully customised for any organisation. (3) Feature Effects: Based on a technique called partial dependence analysis, DataRobot Feature Effects provide a straightforward way to explain to stakeholders and regulators how a specific feature impacts the overall prediction from the model.”
