Who Are You, Citizen Data Scientist?

Mike Gualtieri February 8, 2019
Ugh. Everyone is talking about the citizen data scientist, but no one can define it (perhaps they know one when they see one). Here goes — the simplest definition of a citizen data scientist is: non-data scientist. That’s not a pejorative; it just means that citizen data scientists nobly desire to do data science but are […]
