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).
