An estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are produced every single day, and it’s been fueled by cloud computing, social media, and the rising number of IoT devices connected to the Internet.
Businesses that want to stay ahead of customer demands hire skilled professionals who know how to uncover patterns in any data set. The job title Data Scientist has skyrocketed as one of the most in-demand careers in the past decade. In 2021, Glassdoor ranked it as second only to Java Developer as one of the best jobs in the U.S.
Data scientists can be found in almost every business sector — from entertainment and sports to the financial and healthcare industries. Their mathematics, statistics, computer science, and engineering skills help businesses leverage Big Data in order to create new products and services that have the opportunity to change the world. In the healthcare industry alone, Data Scientists have helped make microscopic deformities more detectable on MRIs, X-rays, and CT scans. These technologies have the potential to save lives.
