From Data Modeler to Data Scientist

From Data Modeler to Data Scientist

The October issue of The Harvard Business Review declared “data scientist” the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century. After getting over my disappointment that “data modeler” was not chosen, I started thinking, So what’s the difference between a data modeler and data scientist anyway? To learn more, I am going to facilitate an early morning session at Data Modeling Zone this year on what additional skills a data modeler needs to know to also be a data scientist. In the meantime, for this challenge, please share what you think is involved in becoming a data scientist and what new skills us as data modelers will need to learn (or perhaps relearn).
