What is a citizen data scientist? It’s a role that analyses data, and then creates data and business models for organisations with the help of big data tools and technologies. Citizen data scientists don’t necessarily need to be data science or business intelligence experts.

Reskilling employees and making organisations more productive: Dr Matt Mullarkey will be presenting on his experience in re-purposing the skills of a Fortune 100 US organisation with Citizen Data Science (CDS), and making the organisation more productive. This meant that the employees were not lost but rather re-skilled. 

Key outcome of the workshop: This will be the structure of a Citizen Data Science course that is suited to organisations and government in South Africa. The workshop includes interactive sessions for defining what is relevant to South Africa.

What is Action Design Research? It’s a design science method that creates ICT artefacts that reflect the context in which they are embedded. Dr Matt Mullarkey will be presenting on his and Alan Hevner’s experiences in the elaborated Action Design Research approach at a Fortune 100 US organisation. The artefacts created were also re-usable.

Key outcome: Beyond intellectual enrichment, the aim is a decision on how South Africa can host an upcoming DESRIST Conference. DESRIST is the most prestigious International Conference on Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technology.
