Data Science in a Box: Tools Attack Critical Skills Shortage

Begging forgiveness for the expression of antiquated gender attitudes, we share a passage from Pride & Prejudice (1813): “….no one can be really esteemed accomplished who does not greatly surpass what is usually met with. A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word….”

“All this she must possess,” added Darcy, “and to all this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading.” “I am no longer surprised at your knowing only six accomplished women,” (said Elizabeth). “I rather wonder now at your knowing any.” Something like this can be said of the data scientist, the IT unicorn whose accomplishments should include “a graduate degree in computer science and expertise in mathematics, statistics, computer programming and business knowledge.”* One wonders at hiring managers knowing, or finding, any.
