Video Series: Demystifying Data Science – Breaking Down Data Science Roles
By Emily Wilson • February 22, 2018
Back in September 2017, we hosted a free live online conference featuring 12 straight hours of data science talks from more than 25 of the industry's best and brightest speakers. Demystifying Data Science was an awesome day of insights, advice, information, and interaction for aspiring data scientists. To share it all, we've broken the collection of recordings into a six-part blog series, of which this is the second. The topic? Breaking Down Data Science Roles. (In Part 1, we covered Launching Your Data Science Career.)
What should you know about various data science roles before you embark on your career (or before you make a career shift)? And what do data scientists really do on a daily basis anyway? Hear talks from three working data scientists about their roles, their ideas of what makes a data scientist, and what you should know about the complex, evolving, exciting field.

When our Data Scientists aren't teaching the intensive 12-week bootcamps or corporate training courses, they're working on a variety of other projects. This monthly blog series tracks and discusses some of their recent activities and accomplishments.
This post features two projects from recent graduates of our data science bootcamp. Take a look at what's possible to create in just 12 weeks, including projects focused on detecting pneumonia using deep learning and predicting track skips in Spotify.
