“Data Scientist (n.): Person who is better at statistics than any software engineer and better at software engineering than any statistician.”
As you can see there are 2 worlds out there: the world of math and statistics and the world of software engineering.
Each of these worlds thinks he is better than the other (which is true in a sense) but the truth is that they also need each other to achieve good results.
One cannot harvest huge amount of data without a proper system and the other who knows how to build such systems doesn’t know how to extract valuable information from so much data.
Coming from a software engineering background I intend to publish some articles as I go along through this journey.
