Why Data Science?

Learn one of the most in demand skills out there

Four megatrends are fundamentally changing the shape of our world:

  • Vast amounts of data are being generated every minute.
  • The processing speed of our machines is increasing exponentially.
  • We now have cloud providers who can store insane amounts of data for a few dollars.
  • Powerful open source algorithms that can read, write, translate and see are now available to everyone.
 

Data Science is the skillset used to harness the power of these tectonic shifts in our world. With the Data Scientist’s tool-kit almost any problem can now be solved using cloud-based technology and the set of algorithms that are the Data Scientists domain.

It is no surprise that Data Scientists are one of the most highly paid and in demand skills of the 21st Century. In fact, the job ‘Data Scientist’ was rated the ‘sexiest profession of the 21st Century’ by the Harvard Business Review.
