What is this webinar about?

Harvard called Data Science ‘The Sexiest Job of 21st Century’. The reason being that data is being generated at super speed right now and businesses can utilise that data to form functional insights. That’s where Data Science come in. But what exactly does a Data Scientist do?

Yes, everybody knows there is data and you make sense out of it through patterns, sequences and structures. But then, what do Data Analysts do? Isn’t this what they do? Moreover, even Statisticians do the same thing, isn’t it?
