Given that ChatGPT was able to solve the problems given by eminent institutions in business and other fields:

1. Do you think the future may be at risk for aspiring data scientists?

2. Have you noticed any significant change at your workplace so far? Especially in a way that suggests that people in DS/DA may lose their jobs in the coming time?

3. What are the areas you think ChatGPT won't be able to compensate for?

1. No
2. No
3. Critical thinking, domain knowledge, knowing whether what you're generating is actually correct and correctly using it.

If I can get $20 for every post about ChatGPT this community had speculating that DS will be at risk I'd be able to buy a Toyota Corolla

Dude if you *know* DS, you can tell how often ChatGPT is straight up bullshitting. If you don't realize this, there's your answer about questions 1 and 3. As for 2, I've started using it to generate code for me. It makes it faster but more often than not the code doesn't work out of the box as it doesn't account for missing dependencies or sometimes uses functions that don't work on that taupe of data etc.

I think it will change. I know most disagree with me. But at my work is is allowing business users to self service. I think that’s where it will shine is tech savvy business analysts that just need help getting the answers but already know the questions to ask.

There have been lots of attempts to automate data science tasks. They have all failed.

Most data science jobs depend on a lot of domain knowledge and critical thinking skills. Two things an automated system doesn't possess.

I've had a few projects that were billed as big data science jobs and I solved them with simple frequency tables.

In my case it has been at capacity everyday for the last week.  I know this can change but I wanted to rant a little bit. Back to your questions, I can see a risk for huge companies with hundreds of analyst where an increase in productivity can return a slight decrease in people punching queries... For small/medium companies I think the added productivity won't be enough to eliminate a position, but it would free some of the analysts' time to enable other kind of tasks.

ChatGPT (until it has perfect answers) will only make good DS even more productive increasing the gap. DS who aren’t good coders or problem solvers won’t magically get a boost from chatGPT, they will just shove more frequent crap code and models into production giving the illusion of productivity.

I don't accept your premise to begin with.

There is much more to many jobs than generating code or text. I’m not scared of so-called AI at all. And if it does ever get good at solving todays well understood problems, then it just frees humans to go after the next problem.
