There has been an increasing hot debate whether the new age of automated data scientists has arrived. While it may take some time to register, but welcome to an era of automated machine learning which represents a fundamental shift in the way organizations of all sizes will approach machine learning and data science in the years to come. So why is automating ML such a trend? Applying traditional machine learning methods to real-world business problems has become resource-intensive, time-consuming and challenging, requiring domain experts in several disciplines, including data scientists who come with a fat paycheck and are the most sought-after professionals in the job market right now. Is it easy to automate the skills that data scientists possess? No is the answer, as the person-specific skills are hard to automate, and people who seek to buy automated AI should be aware of what exactly they can automate, and what they cannot, with the present technology.
