AutoML (automated machine learning) has been extensively developed in the past few years for the model-centric approach. As for the data-centric approach, the processes to improve the dataset, such as fixing incorrect labels, adding examples that represent edge cases, and applying data augmentation, are still very artisanal and expensive. Here we develop an automated data-centric tool (AutoDC), similar to the purpose of AutoML, aims to speed up the dataset improvement processes. In our preliminary tests on 3 open source image classification datasets, AutoDC is estimated to reduce 80% of the manual time for data improvement tasks, at the same time, improve the model accuracy by 10-15% with the fixed ML code.
