January is commonly a time to reflect on the past and make predictions about the future. To each his own, I suppose, but I’m confident that many of us will agree on a few common themes for 2014.
My favorite prediction for the coming year is that data scientists (that's you) will be worth more than before. I think Prakash Nanduri hit it right on the head in his Forbes article when he said, “With the time to prepare data cut in half, we’ll begin to see the return on investment in data scientists that we’ve been desiring as they can focus on what they were hired for.”
Do you agree? What are YOUR predictions for data science in 2014?
