I agree. Especially quantitative jobs e.g. data scientist, which seems to be a pretty good ETG option at the moment since there is such a highly increasing demand for them. But such bottlenecks should also lead to a higher increase in attempts to automate such jobs (see e.g https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.04474, https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/jfp/entry/Data_Science_Automation?lang=en or a project by the MIT http://news.mit.edu/2015/automating-big-data-analysis-1016 and https://groups.csail.mit.edu/EVO-DesignOpt/groupWebSite/uploads/Site/DSAA_DSM_2015.pdf ).
Intuitively it seems if they can automate processes like feature engineering, then analytical processes like building statistical models should be even easier. More research regarding such considerations seems to be very important.Andrei Poehlmann supported this idea ·
