Lilian’s Answer

Hi Syeda, I am going to take a guess that you are seeking to understand what the responsibilities or duties are of a typical data scientist? It is broad but generally your responsibility would be to work with the company leaders or someone within the business and understand what question they are seeking to answer with data. Then work with a data engineer to ensure that data exists and then cleanse the data and apply your statistical and programming knowledge to find an algorithm or model that can help make a prediction, classify, etc. depending on what the original question or problem was. You will often be asked to visualise the data or explain your findings to people who don't necessarily understand data science terminology so you need to act as a translator as well.

Hi Lilian, I'll take a more general approach to your question. You're on track following your desire to be a data scientist.
Your duty in this scenario is to seek information sources and people around you that can help you improve in this over time. It's your duty to seek knowledge as you're doing on this platform and translate that into action. I'm sure you'll be great :)

Hi Syeda

Data scientists are a new breed of analytical data expert who have the technical skills to solve complex problems – and the curiosity to explore what problems need to be solved. They're part mathematician, part computer scientist and part trend-spotter.
Once you compete your current course you can opt for DS course. Here are the few links which you can follow:

Tianxin’s Answer

Hi Syeda, I am going to guess you are in dilemma whether seeking DS (Data Scientist) or other job like SE (Software Engineer).

As far as I know, DS is a glorious career, high salary and many company have this job position, they need him to research ML/AI solution to help data analysis, target classify or prediction, this will be helpful for drafting decision and strategy. But the number of DS requirement is so small, far less than SE.

If you are good at Statistics, and have some coding and presentation skill sets, DS is a best option; But if you are not good at statistics, or afraid of presentation, CS may be better.

Dear Syeda,

As you embark on your journey towards achieving a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) degree at the University of Narowal, Pakistan, and aspire to become a data scientist, here are some actionable steps you can take:

1. Strive for Academic Excellence: Ensure you maintain an outstanding academic record. Regularly attend classes, submit assignments promptly, and actively engage in class discussions. This will solidify your understanding of computer science principles and the mathematics vital for data science.

2. Enhance Your Technical Skills: Master programming languages like Python, R, or Java, which are integral to data science. Get comfortable with data science tools such as NumPy, Pandas, Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, and Keras. Additionally, acquire statistical concepts and techniques to effectively analyze and interpret data.

3. Engage in Practical Projects: Apply your theoretical knowledge to solve real-world problems through project work. Join competitions or hackathons centered around data science challenges to gain hands-on experience and build a portfolio that showcases your abilities.

4. Network with Professionals: Establish connections with professionals in the data science field. Attend networking events, use social media platforms like LinkedIn, or join professional organizations like the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) or the International Machine Learning Society (IMLS). These connections could lead to job or mentorship opportunities that can shape your career.

5. Stay Informed: Keep abreast of the latest trends and advancements in data science. Regularly read industry publications like KDnuggets or Data Science Central, and follow influential figures in the field on social media platforms like Twitter or Medium. This will keep you updated on new techniques and technologies, giving you an advantage when job hunting.
