Gaurav Vohra, CEO & Co-founder Jigsaw Academy:

Here are my predictions for 2021.

  • Machine learning and deep learning will become much more popular. More data and better processing power will enable a lot more analysis of different data. Those who develop these skills will be in demand.
  • There will be a lot more data generated through internet of things. This data will be bigger and messier. Data scientists who develop skills to work with IoT data will have an advantage.
  • Specialized roles will continue to evolve. Specializations will become more logical and some of the confusion around them today will disappear in the next 5 years.
  • Analytics will play an important role in hiring for analytics (and all other roles). We are already seeing evidence of this and I think data driven hiring is coming very soon.
