Why Citizen Data Science?
Because data is everywhere
Gartner first coined the term "Citizen Data Science" in 2016, describing a diverse and distributed network of analysts, who should be able to create data science outputs without being full time data scientists. Since then, demand for data science expertise has continued to grow unabated. There are more data than ever, more questions than ever - but organizations struggle to prioritize data science asks and suffer from coordination friction.
But when every "citizen" steps up, and data science capability is embedded throughout an organization, time to insight and action can be shortened. Their remit might range from simple descriptive outputs and business intelligence to implementation of machine learning techniques.
At the same time supporting Citizen Data Scientist requires us to rethink current Data Science tools, organizational structures, and the way SME, Citizen Data Scientist, and Data Scientist work together. The goal of this one-day conference is to bring researchers, startups creating CDS tools, and companies, who want to expand their CDS workforce, together to learn from each other and form new collaborations.
So the 2021 Citizen Data Science Summit is for everyone:
Hear the best practices other leaders have developed while building out democratized analytics within their organizations.
Learn about new tools and recent research results to make better data driven decisions and where the field is going
Understand how you can lead efforts to spread data literacy within your organization and increase your data science throughput.
Connect with practitioners, develop new collaborations to test out your research results.
