Data Science: Equality at Last!
Despite the vast literature around Big Data, the âData Agents of Changeâ are still a mysterious bunch. They are called âData Scientistsâ, but who are they really?
We donât know what the exact job description for a Data Scientist is or how different they are from their ancestors, the Data Analysts. In fact, when I asked Merv Adrian who now works for Gartner, what a Data Scientist was, he answered: âa Data Scientist is a Data Analyst who lives in San Francisco.â Merv might have meant it as a joke – but he might not be too far off.
