Data Scientists: Who They Are, What They Do, and How They Do It
An analysis of the data collected by the Kaggle platform for data science has shown that the figure of the data scientist is present uniformly in India, the rest of Asia, Europe, and North America, principally in the 25 to 34 age bracket; Python is the language largely preferred by data scientists; and the introduction into companies of models based on machine learning techniques is still very limited, as are financial investments in that area.#However, large companies (>10,000 employees) are those that invest and have consolidated machine learning models, while medium-sized companies have begun to do so recently, and small companies consider these methods to be something extemporaneous, in which they have not yet begun to invest (limiting their use to free or very low-cost tools).
