The future of AI: How AI is transforming data driven professions

Amine  Zekri our consultant managing the role
The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) has sparked a revolutionary shift in technology. In a previous article we have explored the ways in which AI is transforming industries and already making significant contributions, impacting our daily lives.

Previously data analysts were heavily involved in writing intricate code to edit, analyse and visualise data. However, the emergence of AI tools that can automate coding tasks is changing the dynamics of this profession. In March, Goldman Sachs published a report showing that AI could replace the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs.

AI algorithms can now generate code snippets for common data operations, leaving data analysts with less need to manually write codes.  The transition, however, doesn't render data analysts obsolete. Instead, it empowers them to elevate their roles. With AI handling routine coding, data analysts can delve deeper into problem-solving, uncovering insights, and devising innovative strategies. The emphasis shifts from the mechanical execution of code to the nuanced understanding of data patterns and trends.

The future of AI in data analysis depends on how analysts adapt and leverage its potential, with organisations increasingly shifting towards automation and AI-driven insights.

As a data analyst, it's important to embrace AI, stay up to date on AI technologies, enhance proficiency in AI-related skills, and learn how to use AI tools effectively. As AI takes over routine coding tasks, analysts need to upskill and broaden their expertise. Proficiency in interpreting AI-generated code, understanding underlying algorithms, and leveraging advanced analytics tools becomes crucial. Get up to speed on topics like machine learning, natural language processing, and automated analytics.

In essence, the rise of AI in automating coding processes presents a unique opportunity for data analysts to redefine their roles. The transformation from code-centric responsibilities to more strategic, analytical, and interpretative tasks marks a paradigm shift in the industry.
In conclusion, there is no doubt that AI will reshape the workflows in data analysis and data engineering. Repetitive types of tasks or even analyses will in time be performed by generative AI. AI analytics systems can really add value, and augment hard-working data engineers to tackle the challenging problems that will lead to bigger rewards for the company down the line. The integration of AI in data-related roles signals a transformative era for data analysts. While routine coding tasks may become automated, the real value lies in analyst’s ability to harness AI capabilities for deeper insights and strategic decision-making. This evolution demands a proactive approach from data analysts to adapt, upskill, and embrace the collaborative potential of AI in reshaping the future of data analysis.
Staying ahead of this curve, teaching yourself to use new tools as they become available, and maintaining awareness of areas where the human touch is still necessary, is the key to thriving in the age of AI. Generative AI has the potential to automate certain aspects of data analysis, but it is unlikely to replace human creativity and strategic thinking.  With human oversight and expertise combined with the scale and speed of AI, data teams are empowered to drive insights and impact like never before.
