According to the current tech world, data science is one of the fastest growing careers in the country, projected to grow by more than 30% over the next decade. Data science has also topped LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs Report for three years running, with the job title “Machine Intelligence Specialist” growing an incredible 74% over the past four years. Guy Berger, Principal Economist at LinkedIn, even noted in the 2020 report that “artificial intelligence and data science roles continue to proliferate across nearly every industry.”
Today, data scientists are employed at early-stage startups, Fortune 500 companies, government and nonprofit organizations, and virtually anywhere in between. Numerous activities fall within the umbrella of ‘data science,’ from business analytics to database maintenance to machine learning. These roles are amplifying (and, in some cases, replacing) traditional jobs across industries like insurance and government, taking on big initiatives from cyber security to statistical analysis.
From self-driving cars to dynamic business insights for the world's leading companies, data scientists are changing the world.
