10 Must-Read Data Science Articles from September 2017


The data science industry is quickly finding applications in a variety of disciplines ranging from biotechnology to social science. It’s revolutionized the way we make decisions both as businesses and researchers. Data science is currently the ‘best job in America’, according to Glassdoor. The amount of data that we collect is mind-boggling, not only through traditional ways but also through digital platforms and social media. Data analysis, visualization and interpretation are skills that are in high demand — and experts often specialize in specific disciplines such as computer science or even astrophysics. At Kolabtree, we’ve helped project owners find highly qualified freelance data science experts to help them analyze a dataset or write an algorithm — and this is proof that organizations suffer from a skills or resource gap in this field.
