Top 13 Skills To Become a Rockstar Data Scientist

#artificialintelligence

Surprisingly, I got a huge response from many top data scientists from different industries who all shared their thoughts and advice -- which I found very interesting and practical. To learn more about the main differentiators between a good data scientist and a rockstar data scientist, I kept searching on the internet… Until I found this article on KDnuggets. So I distilled all the information and listed down the skills to become a rockstar data scientist. Practically speaking, it's impossible for a data scientist to have all the skills listed below. But these skills are what make a rockstar data scientist different from a good data scientist, in my opinion. By the end of this article, I hope you'll find these skills helpful throughout your career path as a data scientist.

Becoming a data scientist is a relatively new career trajectory that merges statistics, business logic, and programming knowledge. Given the exponential amount of data being churned out via our smartphones, desktops, and the vast array of IoT devices throughout the world, governments and private enterprises are interested in gleaning insight from their extensive data collection processes. While data scientists can (and do) perform data analysis, they do so within the realm of building and deploying predictive models which often incorporate machine learning and deep learning protocols. Data scientists must also have a meta-level understanding of which models are the best fit for the data being analysed. Since all models are approximations of current and future environments, they require fine-tuning which, in turn, relies on the data scientists' mathematical expertise.
