I don't understand “data scientist”.
What “scientist” is not a “data” scientist?
If the focus is on extracting patterns and insight from large datasets, without expert knowledge about the particular domains, to assist decision-making, a might be what you need.
I'm happy to be educated by any reading this, though.


@tripu I was told by several non Brits at an IT recruitment fair in London in December that "data scientist" was a job very high on the "needed in the EU" list when they were looking for what course to take at Uni, what what I can gather in the IT world this is a "big data analyst" or someone who can search well on mongodb 😀. getting a degree as one improves chances of a visa.

I'd agree it is a very non descript job title
