I was at a Google Big Data and AI event to hear about their BigQuery and ML APIs they have released.
There was this middle aged individual with Data Scientist background seems to be really concerned that all this developments are killing their job potentials and what should they be focusing on next.
I found that to be really intriguing especially of someone of his caliber and since the Google presenter was having a hard time answering, i stepped in to share my 2 cents with him.
Its not the tools that makes the men. its our capability to learn, change and adept. Focus on problem solving or the insight you are trying to derive. Tools will come and go.
I hope i was able to ease his concerns abit.
I wish more people gets excited by the future we are going to be in and the challenges we are yet to solve.
