    Data science is more about deep mathematical knowledge, experimental design and ability to interpret, communicate, and translate model conclusions to business actions.

    I could say, I know data scientists with basic programming skills but monsters in mathematical modeling, experimental design, and communication skills. I work as a data scientist today, and for me the fundamental skill is the ability to interpret results from models and translate conclusions from the mathematical world to the business world.

    It sounds like a lot of these job titles: data scientist, data engineer, data analyst, were made up by HR Depts to make positions sound more important. A data scientist isn't really a scientist – he or she is more of a statistician (which is a good thing).

    Hi Ben,

    Thank you for sharing.
    Looks like the data scientist is an upgraded version of the data analyst. I just got into a master's program in analytics and will be starting from the scratch in this field. Your videos are very helpful!

    Also, I have a background in SAS, but seems it is only used in the medical/financial industry. DO you have any opinion on that end?

    Thanks.

    Hey Ben, Great stuff! Keep up the great work. I would love to grab sometime to chat about where the Data Engineer fits into the Big Data Projects. A lot of crossover between the Data Engineer, Data Scientist, and Data Visualization Specialist.

    Data Science is the process of converting Raw data into actionable insights. The data science pipeline consists of 6 stages through which the data goes through. The 6 stages are:
    1) Data Collection
    2) Data Definition
    3) Data Preprocessing
    4) Data Exploration
    5) Predictive Modelling
    6) Reporting

    The stage 3 and 4 together make up what is called Data Analysis.

    I have made a video illustrating it. Check it out here:
