Career Spotlight: What I Do as a Data Scientist

Career Spotlight: What I Do as a Data Scientist | Text Analytics | Scoop.it
The signal biggest misconception in data science is that it's all about "algorithms." I constantly run into people and would-be data scientists who think our work is about deciding between a neural net and a support vector machine. In truth, data science begins by translating a business case into an analytics agenda. Much more time is spent developing hypotheses, understanding data, exploring patterns, and measuring impact than selecting algorithms.

Could not agree more...it takes a hungry mind.

Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, February 10, 9:29 PM

Two tips make life doing data science easier for our teams: First, keeping an internal blog where daily results (even with visuals) are quickly recorded. These aren't formal write ups, but casual documentation of insights over time that support a common understanding of insights and data across data science, project managers, etc. It also supports other scientists looking at the same data in later months.
