AI is undoubtedly a game-changing tool with immense potential to improve human life. This book aims to empower you as a Citizen of Data Science, covering the privacy, ethics, and theoretical concepts you’ll need to exploit to thrive amid the current and future developments in the AI landscape. We'll explore AI's inner workings, user intent, and the critical role of the AI utility function while also briefly touching on statistics and prediction to build decision models that leverage AI and data for highly informed, more accurate, and less risky decisions. Additionally, we'll discuss how organizations of all sizes can leverage AI and data to engineer or create value. We'll establish why economies of learning are more powerful than the economies of scale in a digital-centric world. Ethics and personal/organizational empowerment in the context of AI will also be addressed.

As you have seen in this chapter, creating Citizens of Data Science requires empowering everyone in the organization and giving everyone a voice in where and how AI is designed and deployed to drive meaningful, relevant, responsible, and ethical outcomes.That means that we need to celebrate our personal mission and walk in the shoes of our stakeholders and constituents. We need to embrace an "and" mentality and foster the organizational improvisation necessary to put people in the right places where they can be successful and grow. Ultimately, Citizens of Data Science must nurture their natural human traits of curiosity, creativity, and innovation to thrive in a world more and more dominated by AI and data. ADDMy final point in the book is this: You have all the tools and skills necessary to succeed, but your success is ultimately on you.
