Developing effective data scientists

This is a short talk I delivered as part of the Michigan Institute for Data Science kick-off event at the University of Michigan. Data science is an emergent field that incorporates concepts from statistics, computer science and machine learning to create and apply knowledge from data. In this talk I’ll share what I think are the essential skills and characteristics of effective data scientists. I’ll also provide guidance on how students can develop those skills in school and how educators can prepare them for jobs in industry.

  • 7. –Sarah Guido, Data Scientist @ Bitly and UM alum The single most useful thing I learned in grad school was how to work with data in Python.
  • 8. –Trey Causey, Data Scientist @ ChefSteps, @4thdownbot I wish there had been more emphasis on real data/messy data/getting my own data/cleaning data.
  • 9. 1. Develop deep expertise in a programming language 2. Adopt good coding practices now Student’s t0-do:
  • 10. 1. Expose students to a variety of datasets 2. Focus on applications Teacher’s t0-do:
  • 11. data scientists are curious, life-long learners. effective
  • 12. –Wendy Grus, Technical Data Analyst @ Inrix and UM alum LEARN MORE CODING AND STATISTICS. Meet other people working on data sets not in your field. Learn something not in your field. Don't sit in a box staring at your thesis project.
  • 13. –Amanda Casari, Senior Data Scientist @ Concur I took Naval Criminal Law & international relations. It was hard to stay awake. By comparison, I looked forward to vector calculus and loved Matlab. Lesson: Don't be afraid to explore your options while you are still on the track of figuring out what comes next.
  • 14. –James Pestrak, Senior Data Scientist @ Nordstrom Boundaries between disciplines are becoming less-defined. There are general, powerful patterns of thinking that apply to many disciplines. A good way to become aware of these patterns is to broaden exposure to disciplines.
  • 15. 1. Pursue academic interests outside your discipline 2. Go to meet-ups! Student’s t0-do:
  • 16. 1. Teach with diverse datasets 2. Illustrate parallels between disciplines Teacher’s t0-do:
  • 17. Big ups to these data scientists effective Amanda Casari Trey Causey Wendy Grus Sarah Guido James Pestrak
