Data science jobs outnumber data scientists by three to one. The industry is looking for ways to close that gap, including turning to the concept of the citizen data scientist.

But in today’s episode, Romain Ramora, Head of Data Science & Innovation - Supply Chain at Cisco, shares why he thinks we shouldn’t be putting critical models in the hands of people lacking the proper expertise.

Romain shared his perspective on:

  • How a background in risk analytics and consulting prepared him for a move into supply chain analytics
  • The effectiveness of the citizen data scientist
  • Who should lead a data science project
