Data Contracts: Data Quality for AI

Tuesday, November 7, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In this session, we will dive into the world of data contracts – API-based agreements between data producers and consumers that capture the schema, semantics, distribution, and enforcement policies of the data. Learn how data contracts provide a single surface for collaboration on data in a shared language, allow the data model to evolve in an agile, iterative way, and apply data governance incrementally where it’s needed for AI and ML systems. We’ll explore how organizations can leverage data contracts to ensure artificial intelligence systems are trained on trustworthy and well-governed datasets.


Chad Sanderson is passionate about data quality, and fixing the muddy relationship between data producers and consumers. He is a former head of data at Convoy, a LinkedIn writer, and a published author. He lives in Seattle, Washington, and is the chief operator of the Data Quality Camp.
