I feel industry’s wish list for “data scientist” may be close to finding a unicorn.\ \ Finding a great programmer with a stats background who knows machine learning, has the subject matter expertise in an area to apply it… and is a “big data” architect who keeps up to date with the almost weekly releases of new technology stacks?\ \ Colleges are attempting to fill the need with grad student’s and Phd’s programs for data scientist..but will your skills be relevant?  Most Prof’s are behind in the technology curve,  and few have the unicorn wish list stated above.\ \ “The huge gap in trained data scientist is largely a result of our fast-changing culture and the relentless pace of technological innovation.”\ \ #datascience{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #talentgap{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}
