Brief History Background:
The Art of uncovering the insights and trends in Data has been around since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used census data to increase efficiency in tax collection and they accurately predicted the flooding of the Nile river every year. Since then, people working in data science have carved out a unique and distinct field for the work they do. This field is Data Science.
Data Science is the hottest field of the century. Data science, artificial intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning are revolutionising the way people do business and research around the world.
Basic Definition of Who is a Data Scientist:
By Murtaza Haider, Ph.D., and Author of the Book Getting Started with Data Science: Making Sense of Data with Analytics.
While the world is awash with large volumes of data, inexpensive computing power, and vast amounts of digital storage, the skilled workforce capable of analysing data and interpreting it is in short supply.
It may surprise you to know that individuals and corporations are battling over who is a data scientist. My definition is rather simple and straightforward. If you analyse data to find solutions to problems and are able to tell a compelling story from your findings, you are a data scientist.
