Is Data Science Too Easy?

Is data science too easy? originally appeared on Quora: the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.

Answer by Maurice Ewing, Trained and Led Data Science teams in over 50 countries, on Quora: No, data science is not easy. It’s just unshaped and not “professionalized.” By this I mean there are no standard sets of tools, no educational curricula, no certifying bodies, nor any specific career paths that lead to becoming a data scientist; yet all the essential bits are there—and they’re not easy to acquire, assemble or apply well.
