DATA SCIENCE SKILLS, AND HOW TO LEARN THEM

TOP 10 DATA SCIENCE SKILLS, AND HOW TO LEARN THEM Published by  EILEEN MCNULTY · DECEMBER 25, 2014 on Dataconomy.com One of most popular posts this year came from Ferris Jumah, a data scientist at LinkedIn, who mapped the most popular skills of data scientists by scraping LinkedIn profile data. One of the common comments amongst data scientists who came across this post- as with most of our posts focused around data science skillsets- was “Surely, you can’t expect data scientists to have all these skills?” Naturally, we don’t- every data science role involves a particular comibination of some of the skills, and anyone who had mastered all of the programming languages listed alone would be some sort of computing demi-God.

BIG DATA 101: INTRO TO PROBABILISTIC DATA STRUCTURES

BIG DATA 101: INTRO TO PROBABILISTIC DATA STRUCTURES CHRISTOPHER LOW · APRIL 17, 2017 on Dataconomy.com Oftentimes while analyzing big data we have a need to make checks on pieces of data like number of items in the dataset, number of unique items, and their occurrence frequency. Hash tables or Hash sets are usually employed for this purpose. But when the dataset becomes so enormous that it cannot fit inside the memory all at once, we need to use special kinds of data structures known as Probabilistic Data Structures.
