Career as a Data Scientist/Data Analyst

in India

Data Scientist is the specialist who uses Mathematical and Statistical methods, computer modelling and software to extract knowledge and information from structured (such as a database in MS-Excel or SQL) or unstructured data (such as written text, images, and videos). Data can be anything from population data and personal income data of Indians to images, video, and GPS data. A Data Scientist is different from Data Analyst as Data Scientists use computer modelling and write algorithms to extract information from a large set of data that is normally not possible by using Statistical and Mathematical tools only.
