Predict Death with Big Data | SmartData Collective


See on Scoop.itWhat is Data Science

(Image) Death. Many of the discussions around data revolve around death. These discussions are typically pretty mundane. Why do phone calls die?

Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

Data science has become a “sexy” job in part because of how rare it is to find someone with the right combination of skills and know-how. These individuals can intuit the combinations of factors that might lead to a specific event better than a pure data person and manipulate data more skillfully than a typical business person. 

Sorry but isn’t what actuaries do?? I think we are getting away from Data Science’s true intent but that is my opinion… actually I became a data scientist because I didn’t want to be an actuary and work in insurance so I am confused by this article, you be the judge.
