Dear AI Aficionado,
For the third year in a row, we surveyed data scientists (nearly 200 this year) from all manner of organizations. We asked questions from years past like gauging happiness levels and demand for data scientists and new questions about characteristics of the data used by our respondents. New this year -- lots of insights into the word of AI with a special emphasis on the important components of AI success like algorithms and training data.
We compiled it all into one free report which you can download here.
Some of our favorite insights:
- 88% of data scientists report being happy or very happy in their roles (although 3% would rather be
- 89% of data scientists are contacted for new job opportunities at least once a month and 30% contacted several times a week.
- 72% of data scientists plan on riding in a self-driving car within 5 years.
The full report contains well over a dozen key insights on the state of data scientists, AI initiatives and data itself. We hope you enjoy reading the report as much as we did
