What is a data scientist?

A data scientist is a data expert who helps collect, analyze and interpret large amounts of data in order to solve complex business problems. They combine statistics, computer science and business acumen to help an organization understand more about itself and achieve its goals. Oftentimes this involves taking messy, unstructured data from a multitude of sources and devising methods for making sense of it, using machine learning, artificial intelligence, and statistical analysis in order to uncover trends and challenge existing assumptions.
