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.
