Empowering Citizen Data Scientists with Collective Intelligence

It’s no secret that there’s a shortage of traditional scientists. They’re hard to find, and even harder to afford when you do find them. And even if you can, you’ll still never feel like you have enough of them. That’s why the rise of the citizen data scientist is so critical to the ongoing analytics revolution. These non-technical but supremely ambitious line of business employees represent the future of analytics. Now, and for the foreseeable future, citizen data scientists will be the driving force behind the use of analytics to drive innovation.

Empowering them with the right tools is thus paramount to the long-term success of analytics. Enter collective intelligence. In a world where empowering the citizen data scientist is paramount, collective intelligence holds the key. In this in-depth session, John K. Thompson, GM, Dell Statistica, will examine the concept of collective intelligence as it relates to analytics, and explain how organizations lacking the skills to build the right analytical models themselves can now leverage the work of those who do have the necessary skills – all without having to hire those experts directly.
