The idea of "ambassadors" is a good one. Allowing those citizen scientists to enter the field and spread the word to many others in language that can more readily be understood can only lead to wider adaption of analytics and further it's progress over time.

Should be a very interesting discussion. The amateur or citizen data scientists will be effective ambassadors. Demistifying the processes and jargon, making it more receptive and proliferate its incorporation widely.

I would think that the citizen scientists also want to solve problems maybe more than the datat scientists, and that may well make for a good mix. The non-data folks will pull together the right questions to ask and combine creativitiy and technical folks to get to good solutions.

There was a time when computers were the exclusive tool of professional computer specialists. Think 1970s. But eventually, every student and every professional got their own PC.

I don't think it will take anywhere near as long for analytics tools to move into the mass-market.

The Show won't be long enough to cover all the juicy aspects of the Citizen Data Scientist but kudos to A2 for exploring a real solution to the analytical needs of businesses today.

While I am excited about the potential of an earnest leverage of Citizen Data Scientists by business, I am still concerned that far too many companies prefer to practice the "pigeon hole" approach towards their workforce and as a result may never take advantage of the Citizen Data Scientist already in their employ.

I believe I have argued this point in the past but even though companies have become more nimble in the use of their internal resources, there is still a "pigeon hole" approach towards workforce resources.

So I hope those companies that still practice this antiquated approach will tune in and learn something.

It's about Time.
