There is a glass with water in it sitting on a table- is the glass half empty or is it half full?
The way you answer the question above may determine how you think about IBM’s new solution for the high demand for data scientists. Data scientists are people who can analyze and control analytical programs that work to sort through large masses of data.
As the amount of data the world produces increases, the need for people who can sort through that data and make meaning of it goes up as well. IBM believes that they can aid this problem with their natural language analytics program which is predicted to be able to do the job of a data scientist.
This provokes the question, is this a good thing? Is this a means to an end or is this the beginning of a war between humans and robots for jobs?
