Citizen Data Scientists: What Are They, How Can They Help?
What is a citizen data scientist, and how can these individuals impact the analytics program at your organization? Do you have potential citizen data scientists on staff at your company? How can you use these workers to help drive the business effort?
Gartner defines citizen data scientist as a person who creates or generates models that use advanced diagnostic analytics or predictive and prescriptive capabilities, but whose primary job function is outside the field of statistics and analytics.
The market research firm has forecast that more than 40% of data science tasks will be automated by 2020, and citizen data scientists can help bridge the gap between mainstream self-service analytics by business users and the advanced analytics techniques of data scientists.
That's important as many organizations have long cited a talent gap as a problem in the progress of their advanced analytics programs.
