How secure is a job as a data scientist?

Job security is a misnomer in today’s world with the high levels of automation & technological advancements prevalent today. However, the job of a data scientist cannot be completely automated at any stage of execution. The execution of the optimal algorithms with the cleansed data can be automated; but the way to work with these algorithms or which algorithm to run in which situation – cannot be automated. Hence, it’s a symbiotic relationship which is followed here between automation engines & data scientist. In that sense, the job of a data scientist is secure till the time the individual is potent enough to do his job.
