AI can aid in data exploration, combing through data to automatically find patterns, helping users understand what the data means, and predicting future outcomes. Power BI Embedded has been a pioneer in applying AI through natural language, which enables users to get answers by asking questions in plain English.

We’re now bringing AI to Power BI Embedded by delivering key influencers analysis. The key influencers visual shows what increases or decreases based on the likelihood of a business event occurring or what influences a KPI’s rise or fall. Machine learning is used to rank influencers from most to least impactful, and a likelihood score and natural language description is provided to explain the impact. Users can drill into a factor to see the distribution of their data for that variable/category. As users interact with their reports, either through filtering or selecting visuals, the key drivers are re-evaluated and updated in real time.
