Technical Vision talk: “Why is a good data scientist a package of professions?”
Neža will discuss her insights gathered during six years of experience in product data science, working within a fast-paced and dynamic environment, where changes occur rapidly. The talk will emphasize the importance of a data scientist’s adaptability throughout various stages of analysis and the need to sometimes adopt alternate roles such as a lawyer, creative director, or therapist to navigate the situation effectively. The central theme of the talk will be the expansion of a data scientist’s skill sets beyond mere technical proficiency and critical thinking, demonstrating how they can develop a more broad skill set.
