Becoming a Data Scientist

Coding Artificial Intelligence

Due to the changes in computational power and storage of data, the demand for Data Scientists has increased exponentially and will keep growing in the next years. Even though I feel that the term “data scientist” is a bit vague, I believe that doing data science serves as a starting point for beginners in the field of AI, and eventually helps them to further shape their career paths within this field.

In a broad perspective, Data Science is defined as a multi-disciplinary field that uses different methods and algorithms to extract information or knowledge and derive insights from data. Despite the fact that it seems to exist a clear definition of a Data Scientist, the role can be (an still is) confused with other job titles. I think that this misunderstanding is actually multi-sided: both specialists and companies are not entirely sure how Data Scientist’s skills can benefit their business.
