- Data science and statistical modeling will be further automated, with better black-box products
- Frontiers between data science, operations research, machine learning, artificial intelligence and statistics, will disappear
- AI will become more prominent, and referred to as deep learning in our community
- We will see more open data and open projects
- The death of the fake data scientist: if you only know basic R or SQL, earned your title spending a few hours in a data science boot camp not working on any real big data project, and if your knowledge comes from free books read by millions of people, you won't easily find a job.
- The birth of the data scientist convert: conversely and ironically (with respect to my previous point), if you are not a data scientist, maybe a biologist or physicist, but have worked on real data, are able to code, and produced value out of data, you might get a data science job easier than ever.
