Madison Logic CTO, Mark Herschberg, was recently featured in an article by Visual Studio Magazine where he shared his thoughts on what it takes to assemble a successful Data Science team.
“A good data scientist has a combination of three different skills: data modeling, programming and business analysis,” Herschberg said. “The data modeling is the hardest. Most candidates have a masters degree or PhD in math or science and have worked with various statistical models. They have programming skills–not so much the type to let you build a scalable enterprise system, but in that they can access the database and move data around. They are probably better at R and sci py (a type of Python) than at building a Web application. They also are familiar with tools like Hadoop and NoSQL databases. Finally, they have some basic business sense, so [they] will know how to ask meaningful business questions of the data.
