The latter believes that data scientists have a major role to play in this rapidly changing world. “This is the most exciting job of our generation», He concedes.
This upheaval raises many questions within companies in order to respond to new challenges and issues. For Eric Biernat, author of the book “Data Science: fundamentals and case studies»(Ed: Eyrolles) with Michel Lutz, data scientists are essential to help companies adapt to a more modern and connected world, but also more complex. “These are the essential cogs between data and company value creation.», He specifies.

And for good reason, the stake for companies is to leave a “sense of intelligence»To consumers (invisible payment, fast and optimized customer journey, etc.). “We may not need a very scientific data scientist less, but rather a very technical data scientist», Notes Eric Biernat. And to conclude: “The data scientist will be more geek.“
