Data scientists are increasingly important to organizations as decisions become more data driven. You need to be able to tell the real and talented data scientists from a charlatan who talks the talk. Here are five questions every data scientist should be able to answer.
1. What is data science, and how does it differ from data analysis? It’s one thing to say you can look at data and tell what it means. It’s another thing to be able to show replicable results and develop new methods for discovering things. 2. What can’t data science do? A real data scientist will easily be able to describe the limits of data science today and what progress is being made.
