A data scientist needs to be Critical and always on a lookout for something that misses others. So here is some advice that one can include in the day to day data science work to be better at their work:
1. Beware of the Clean Data Syndrome
You need to ask yourself questions even before you start working on the data. **Does this data make sense?** Falsely assuming that the data is clean could lead you towards wrong Hypotheses. Apart from that, you can discern a… Continue

In my experience, some of the most talented analytics professionals I’ve managed were ones that had intimate knowledge of the system limitations required to meet customer needs. These individuals came from a variety of roles, some from engineering, and others from customer service roles. Their strength was in forming specific hypotheses to pinpoint customer experience issues and then leveraging their curiosity to do whatever it took, including learning new statistical techniques and… Continue

Data scientists are big data wranglers. They take an enormous mass of messy data points (unstructured and structured) and use their formidable skills in math, statistics and programming to clean, massage and organize them. Then they apply all their analytic powers – industry knowledge, contextual understanding, skepticism of existing assumptions – to uncover hidden solutions to business challenges.
On any given day, a data scientist may be required to:

- Brush up on your math and statistics skills. A good data scientist must be able to understand what the data is telling you, and to do that, you must have solid basic linear algebra, an understanding of algorithms and statistics skills. More advanced mathematics may be required for certain positions, but this is a good place to start.
- Understand the concept of machine learning. Machine learning is emerging…
