Tonic and Synthetic Data with Andrew Colombi and Adam Kamor

This post was originally published on Software Engineer Daily

All robust technology platforms require testing to ensure that features work as intended. In many cases, tests require data, but getting access to valid and high quality test data is a common challenge, especially when the technology runs on sensitive data. Realistically mimicking data that would normally contain sensitive financial or personal information is not easy.

Tonic.ai was started in 2018 to provide developer tools to transform production data into safe testing data. Andrew Colombi is the CTO and Adam Kamor is the Head of Engineering at Tonic. They join the show to talk about creating realistic synthetic data, data de-identification, validating LLM RAG output, Tonic’s subsetting engine, and much more.

Full Disclosure: This episode is sponsored by Tonic.
