  • Sean Welch 

Machine learning is said to be an important driver of the future of intelligent systems, automatically analyzing data and distilling new knowledge, actionable insights and compelling decisions. But why show market trends that investments in data scientists – those golden people that train machine learning models – have never been higher if machine learning can be fully automated? Why do we need data scientists if machine learning is designed to do it all? In this latest Data Science Central podcast, Véronique Van Vlasselaer, Data & Decision Scientist at SAS, will discuss what machine learning automation entails, and how valuable human input in the machine learning process is.
