Presented by

About this talk

In this episode of DataXpresso we will be tackling the subject of citizen data scientists and whether the hype surrounding them can really live up to reality. A citizen data scientist (CDS) is broadly defined as an individual that can extract sophisticated insights from data while not requiring the skill and proficiency of an expert data scientist. CDSs have been heralded as an answer to the talent gap we see around the scarce, and highly sought after skills needed for data science. However, while there are some real benefits to lowering the entry level for data science, what are the practicalities of becoming, or working with, a CDS? What steps can we take to identify a potential CDS and ensure their success? Tune in on June 16th to learn more.
