The very core of a data scientist’s job profile is undergoing a sea change. First, analytic platforms are becoming one-stop shops for data scientists. Second, and a more important reason, is that advanced analytics (everybody is calling it embedded AI) is becoming the hidden layer of Systems of Intelligence (SOI) in the new enterprise applications stack.Both these forces are changing the ways in which data scientists need to do their jobs and how they continue to create value. In this session, we will discuss the changes in approaches to data science, starting from “handcrafted knowledge” to “statistical learning” to “contextual adaptation”, and how and why data scientists need to focus on the higher value work!
