The theory that, when made easy enough to employ, any job can feasibly be turned into a commodity tends to have this erosive effect.
d-fanelli74139dYep. These mathematicians who probably got a D- in statistics 101. They can join the “software ENGINEERS” who know how to write software by following their routines outlined by “courses” but crumble if that routine doesn’t work lol. “Software ENGINEER”: Duh What’s an object? Encapsulation? Durr Is that a pill?
NoMad960639dNot everybody who holds a spoon is a chef.
But hey, as someone in the field, a lot of early data exploration and proper data warehousing are stuff that help machine learning engineers (not the ones who just "use tensorflow") do their jobs faster and more efficiently. So regardless of whatever their title is, if they do the manual labor of gathering and organizing the data for someone like me, it helps greatly.
Demolishun1065139dHow dare the people who never built an asic from silicon wafers call themselves a computer scientist! How dare the people who didn't mine the carbon for a resistor call themselves electrical engineers!
Is every specialty so unreachable that someone cannot dare to climb that hill?
Or are we talking about people who take a 12 week course to earn 100K per year? I cringe when I see those adverts.
varikvalefor77939dReal data scientists know that machine learning is rarely the best answer, anyway.
