What Are The Most Valuable Skills To Learn For A Data Scientist Now? - HPC ASIA

What Are The Most Valuable Skills To Learn For A Data Scientist Now? - HPC ASIA | Big Data | Scoop.it
HPC Asia's insight:

Truth be told first - even if it disappoints many people -the industry does not have an agreed upon definition of a data scientist! 

Jokes like 'a data scientist is a data analyst living in the Silicon Valley' are abundant. Below is one such cartoon, just for fun.



Finding an 'effective' data scientist is hard and finding people who understand who a data scientist is equally hard. Note the use of 'effective' here, I use it to highlight that there could be people who might possess some of these skills yet may not be the best fit in a data science role. Irony is that even the people looking for hiring data scientists do not know who a data scientist is. Hiring managers post job descriptions for traditional data analyst and business analyst roles while the title calling it a 'Data Scientist' role.  

Everything that I say below is my experience working in a data scientist role with a major search engine and advertising platform. Instead of giving a bullet list of skills, I would first highlight the difference between some data related roles. 

Consider the following scenario. Shop-Mart and Bulk-Mart are two competitors in selling retail. Some higher up in the management chain asks this question: "How many Shop-Mart customers also go to Bulk-Mart?". 

[Please note that the question might be of interest to Bulk-Mart management or even a third party, possibly a market research or consumer behavior company, interested in shopping behavior of the population.]
