Data Scientist

Data scientists can appear to be wizards who pull out their crystal balls (MacBook Pros), chant a bunch of mumbo-jumbo (machine learning, random forests, deep networks, Bayesian posteriors) and produce amazingly detailed predictions of what the future will hold. However, as much as we’d like to believe it was, data science is not magic. The power of data science comes from a deep understanding of statistics and algorithms, programming and hacking, and communication skills. More importantly, data science is about applying these three skill sets in a disciplined and systematic manner.
