Explainable Patterns: Going from Findings to Insights to Support Data Analytics Democratization

  title={Explainable Patterns: Going from Findings to Insights to Support Data Analytics Democratization},
  author={Leonardo Christino and Martha Dais Ferreira and Asal Jalilvand and Fernando Vieira Paulovich},
In the past decades, massive efforts involving companies, non-profit organizations, governments, and others have been put into supporting the concept of data democratization, promoting initiatives to educate people to confront information with data. Although this represents one of the most critical advances in our free world, access to data without concrete facts to check or the lack of an expert to help on understanding the existing patterns hampers its intrinsic value and lessens its…
