A couple of folks from Obviously.ai contacted me a few days back to introduce their service — a completely no-code machine learning automation tool. I was a bit skeptical at first, as I always am with supposedly fully-automated solutions, but I decided to give it a try. I’ll share my thoughts in this article, and discuss if service is worth the try.

I find it somewhat difficult to watch tools like this one automate machine learning, and decrease the need for machine learning engineers in small and medium-sized companies. The reasons are many, but the biggest is that the purpose of machine learning was to automate other professions, but we’ve managed to automate machine learning with machine learning. Good job.

It’s not entirely a bad thing, as we can now focus on more important things, instead of fitting algorithm after algorithm, with the aim of squeezing that additional 0.15% accuracy.
