In the field, splitting statistics into machine learning statistics and statistics is arbitrary and should be seen for what it is, a transparent grab for who gets to analyze the data, cheered on by those who were previously excluded to some degree. This is becoming a greater issue now because software is so user friendly that everyone can run a complex algorithm, which is far beyond their comprehension.

We need to train and certify people, who are competent to analyze data and what we should avoid is certifying whether people are competent to publish papers.
