Demystified – The Seven Types of Data Scientists and What They Do

Data Scientist can become an ambiguous professional title, given the overlap and cross-functional relationships a data scientist bears with other related domains. We will try to deconstruct this ‘mystical’ domain and give you a lowdown on the different types (sub-domains) of data scientists. Following is a family tree of data scientists. 1. Data Scientist with […]

Data science and ethics and privacy

Should data scientists worry about ethics and privacy?

What data scientists can learn about ethics and privacy from the example of OkCupid.
