A data scientist is a professional who collects, organises, analyses, and visualises big data and draws meaningful conclusions. They also communicate the insights to the business leaders to help them make informed decisions.
Also, they are skilled at gathering information from different sources, processing it into a suitable format, and uploading it into the analytics system for deeper analysis. They must be adept at computer programming, artificial intelligence, data mining, and predictive analytics. Using machine learning algorithms, they transform raw data into actionable information.
