The Role of Statistics in Data Science

Data Science relies heavily on the disciplines of Research, Computer Science, and Statistics. Aspiring Data Scientists must be “multilingual” in order to be successful. Although, the American Statistical Association’s Statement on the Role of Statistics in Data Science is now several months old, it’s still good reading. (It’s very short.)

If you’re an aspiring Data Scientist, I encourage you to consider joining the ASA. They sponsor some really interesting conferences, and the publications are great reading.
